Greta Thunberg

On the brink of the tipping point,
To arouse the prophetic soul
Of the wide world,
Mother Nature brought forth
An enlightened, articulate girl,
Who, after striking alone
For months,
Finger in the dike,
With her resolute ethical sling
Has stunned the global Goliaths
And corporate Cyclopes
And stirred her peers
To combat climate change
By becoming the stewards
Of the Earth
And all its mysterious creatures.
