Humble advice offered on the marketing of concern

I've decided
global warming
sounds too much like
a party you could give
to a new world
in the neighborhood

and climate change
too optimistic
to alarm

for change is inevitable
is it not?
and so very often good

instead let's call it...

Hell on Earth,

All 10 Plagues at Once,

The End of Us and Ours,

something with some teeth
and hair on it

for otherwise
the channels change
but the
program stays the same
