The Boy of the Future (Free Verse)

50 years from now I dream of a world

with no people trying to stop climate change.

Climate change would be finished.
I would be a farmer and I would grow corn.
I would have chickens and cows and I would grow

good watermelons and strawberries.

I would live with my Dad.

I hope pollution would stop and people will stop killing animals

so we can have more animals, and they won’t become extinct.

I will feel happy about the work like this.
