A bookend for "The New Normal"... this is set in the not-too-distant future, when children ask their parents why they didn't do more to stop climate change from wrecking the planet.

On the subject of extinction, we strongly encourage you to visit "Everyday Extinction", an Instagram account documenting the Sixth Extinction so that you can learn how to help mitigate it:



Hey Daddy
What did you do in the war on Earth?
Hey Daddy
Were you thinking of us or what your stocks were worth?
Show me photos of the leopards and the tall giraffes
Hey Daddy
If only your money could bring them back

Hey Daddy
What did you think of the hurricanes?
Hey Daddy
What did you do when the flooding came?
Show me photos of a million species that all are gone
Tell me again how so many people could be so wrong

Hey Daddy
Looking back it seems so clear
Hey Daddy
It kept on getting warmer each year
Hey Daddy
Mostly everything is gone
Hey Daddy
The sixth extinction matches on...

Pay attention.
