When his name is engraved upon granite

“Only 10 weeks into his presidency, and at great risk to future generations, Donald Trump has ordered the demolition of most of President Barack Obama’s policies to combat climate change by reducing emissions from fossil fuels.”


President Trump Risks the Planet

When his name is engraved upon granite
In the rubble that’s left of our planet,
Some wandering spirit
May say (we won’t hear it),
“This can’t be America, can it?”
