Star (an acrostic poem)

Supernova hatred exploded from Jim.

The waves of revulsion swept over Andy, knocking him back a step.

Andy worried about what was left of the man who used to be his best friend.

Realizing that now a black hole was where Jim’s heart used to be.

Hurdle (an acrostic poem)

 

How high do we need to jump

Until we finally get over the hump

Realizing true equality for ALL

Determined not to go backwards ever again

Leaving behind the strife, bigotry, and hatred

Embracing a truly brilliant future

Testify (an acrostic poem)

There once was a time where I was lost and clueless

Even thought about just giving up completely

Seriously, it was that bad

Then you walked into my life

It completely changed everything

Forced me to become a far better man because of it

Yet throughout this whole ordeal my hatred of you has never wavered

Global Warming (an acrostic poem)

Glacial movement on a worldwide scale

Letting loose fears and hatred

Obliterating the facts on local perceptions

Blaming anyone and everyone else

All should look at it objectively

Listening to the data presented

 

We instead focus on the economic finger pointing

Alarms of false science on the scale used against Darwin

Relying on beliefs that stand upon sandy shores

Much of that sand being eroded away by the rising waters

Isolating those beliefs on a shrinking island

Now is the time to work on the problem

Giving our future a chance
