What’s Holding Us Back?

What’s holding us back from progress?
Scientists breed evidence, no less.
Our skies now burn a brownish hue,
Oceans rise, glaciers in our dew;
Nothing natural, just our very own mess.

Those who know can’t further express
Concern for this global distress.
If there’s no fact, not stat askew,
What’s holding us back?

The science of fact is not meant to impress,
Though the media feels it must suppress
Through erroneous discourse they love to spew
To appease an audience they misconstrue.
The power to ask, we truly possess,
What’s holding us back?
