Piddling While the Forest Burns

Nero fiddled while Rome burned.
Two world leaders piddle on each other
while the Amazon rainforest burns.
It has been centuries from one to the other.

Hasn’t anything been learned?

Pompeii died in the eruption of the Vesuvius volcano
And now the earth is dying from our abuse.
Can we and our leaders get our act together or no?
Defending one’s wife’s honor is nice but not an excuse.

One did the right thing, but should now leave it alone.
The other one’s demand for an apology
(before taking money to help end the fire)
warrants being turned  into stone.

Hasn’t anything been learned?
