Writing Prompt #31- Unbearable heat


The hottest day ever was…

There was a slight stirring of the air

But it only made things more uncomfortable

The temperature was way over a hundred degrees

People who hadn’t experienced this ever

Were wilting like tender flowers in sun

All were praying for a break in the weather

A shower to cool of the sweltering heat

But things had gotten out of control

The use of fossil fuels and emission of greenhouse gasses

Had brought them to this unbearable heat

Too late, they said Too late now

What damage has been done cannot be reversed

He woke up with a start from this nightmare

Promising himself that he would work harder

It is time to wake everybody on the planet

This are getting out of hand now
