THE WATCHERS

Fredericto­n, NB

“Change is in the air; you can smell it from behind your mask. Children are pushing politics, the government is selling weed, winter is getting warmer while summer’s heat is killing the elderly. The eternal flame now burns in the Amazon, California, and British Columbia. Lethal flooding is common around the world. But climate change is fake news. Change is coming but the super-rich resist, rebelling against the science, profiting on the laziness of humans, putting their faith in the dollars they’ve stashed on the islands. Like pirates, they stash their stolen bounty, while their workers visit food banks. The children skip school on Fridays, you won’t find them at the mall though. They’re in the streets. They’re at the legislatur­es. They’re trying to teach science to the clueless politician­s who only listen to the super-rich pirates that need bailout money in a “crisis.” Little do they know, not even the super-rich will survive the end of the human era. These scientists, these activists/rebels/protesters/watchers, are the only true visionarie­s of our future. Their intentions are pure. Their future is unwritten.”
