Water Highway to moon

Every where there is concern
Climate is becoming weird day by day
Countries are blaming each other
For the green house gas emissions
No one ready to accept their faults
Nor ready to come up with solutions
Everyone on street know the solution
But governments endorse economic growth
Over emission cuts that could bring down
The monster of global warming
Kyoto and Copenhagen
More summits will follow with same results
With negotiators stage-managing the drama
One day they will have to act
When they finally see their cities submersing
Now they fend off the Greenpeace activists
With the iron fist of law
But, one day there won’t be a place to hide
When thunderstorms, floods, droughts, tsunamis
Earthquakes come with vengeance
With the silent permission of Mother Nature
To reclaim her pride, marred by greed of humans  
We are experts in dumping all the wastes
Wherever possible on earth and space
It’s the time for us to think,
how to flush out the excess water from the oceans?
Before we are forced out from our homeland
To some hostile planets where we have to fight
Every moment with forces there to survive
Where we can’t walk nor breathe freely
Let’s build a water highway to the moon
Piercing channels through the space
Pumping out water molecules with escape velocity
And then pulling them towards the craters of moon
With the gravity
Then filling them with the virgin water from earth
We can use this water to feed ourselves
As we want to have colonies there
To launch our quest to conquer this universe
To find the aliens and other living organisms
We can recreate oceans at the barren lands in moon
We can even create artificial atmosphere
With water vapors and other gases
As we are experts
In emitting millions of cubic meters of dangerous gases
We can take space tourists to show them
The spectacular water high way for huge sums of money
May be someday people can undertake adventurous trips
On some space vehicles through that water highway
As long as we can keep the water level down in earth
Any amount spent on that highway is worth a punt
We can have tourists’ resorts in moon
Along the banks of this highway
With yatches lining up for luxury rides
On the water we find as junk on earth
We recreated every monument possible
May be we can recreate Venice on moon
As for humans, “nothing is impossible.”

This poem is inspired by the continuing protest by green-peace activists against the governments for not trying significantly to reduce the emissions.Global warming is affecting our very existence in this planet.

That was a wonderful reminder to us humans to be wary of the consequences of the damage we are doing to the Earth and all its bounties. Keep creating such wonderful verses...
