Chocolate Planet

40 years from now … they say …
chocolate there will be no more –
drought will kill the seeds
they say…hell’s about to open its door

Cocoa’s gonna lose its home..they say…
Inferno! West Africa’s becoming
Côté d’Ivoire and Ghana…
they can hear dessert’s approaching drumming …

but hope remains…they say…
withing divine power of the human brain
like once Eve from Adam’s bone was created
to build a grain with no need of rain

no need to stop heating … they say…
engineers will create a new earth
with cloudy skies and rebel plants
in order to continue to enjoy our artificial mirth

World that will stand upon sacrifice
of those who choke by blazing airs
dried or flooded –
where DNA of cocoa worth saving before theirs.
