Look into my eyes.
    Please.

Do you see fish there
    Dying?

Do you see waters there
    Boiling?

Do you see children there
    Bleeding?

Do you hear trees, their crying?

Do you smell roses, their offering
        the unbearably sweet scent of a last inhale?

Please look into my eyes. 
      Please.

See the fish. Hey. Surrender.
