This was too long to Tweet and is in my latest YA fantasy.

A teen’s poem about the anguish of young people facing global warming, endless wars, economic dystopia in their futures, etc.

“My toy world’s broken.

My buddies tears bleed.

Our natural dreams twisted,

Drowned in a smog of ugly End.

 

For kids to still make-believe,

To giggle and glow,

Our future’s not just now.

Our forever’s now,

crying for. . . .”
