It was a side step

It was a side step,
Alone we underwent
A transformation,
Blind footing our weather
Into the permafrost.
It was a side step
In a world awash and a world in drought.
All over the globe
People sat and listened.
There is little we can do.
It was a step too far
Life styles unlimited,
Oxygen unrestricted,
Water water everywhere
And fire in the hills.
