It’s 3:23 in the morning and I’m awake
because my great, great grandchildren won’t let me sleep.
My great, great grandchildren ask me in dreams
what did you do, while the planet was plundered?
What did you do, when the earth was unravelling?
Surely you did something when the seasons started failing
as the mammals, reptiles, and birds were all dying?
Did you fill the streets with protest when democracy was stolen?
…What did you do once you knew?
