A city in denial

Denial Our mayor just launched his bid for another five years in office. No matter that we peep through garbage heaps to see the sun every morning. That’s the only way we know the earth still turns on its axis, even as our city grinds to a halt.

Then we get stuck in traffic, heading to businesses that are posting negative growth. We pray we make it back home without getting robbed; there’s no guarantee doctors will be working today. No running water? Oh, that’s climate change. But our mayor is like Adam, his fast mouth will get him re-elected.
