Exceptional
This work has reached the exceptional level
a poem about the inevitable effect of climate change
"Drought" by Anya Trofimova
After drought
swallowed
our cows,
with nothing
left to bleed,
uncle sets out,
shotgun loaded.

20 Syllable Poem contest entry

Author Notes
A poem inspired by the November drought in Australia, New South Wales, which led to a widespread famine and claimed the lives of thousands. The local authorities and experts cited climate change as the culprit for these extreme weather patterns.

It is not too late to take radical action, for the sake of our children, grandchildren, future generations and the future of our beautiful, humble planet.

Photograph by Time magazine. Farmer Jack Slack-Smith, 65, listens to a weather report in his living room on Epping Farm in New South Wales in November. The drought has reduced his cattle stock from 7,000 to approximately 3,600.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
