PROMPT ~ The glass?
Is the glass half-full, or half-empty?
A GLASS HALF EMPTY OR HALF FULL
by John Yeo
The Weather forecast is dire;
I am sure the weather will get better:
Continual rain will never stop;
We will probably not get a drop:
The crops will fail, we are set to starve;
The predictions are overstated:
Global warming is taking its toll;
We will all eat well and survive on a roll:
The world will become a gigantic desert;
Our scientists are all very clever:
Soil will dry and become sand;
They will find ways to make a stand:
The oil will run out, we will grind to a halt;
We will discover new fuels to survive:
The Earth will become dust with millions hungry;
New foods will arrive to feed our young:
An asteroid will collide and wipe us out;
We will all take a trip to outer Space:
Our people need to cling to pessimism;
We will all survive on our innate optimism:
For every pessimist there’s always an optimist.
