Etymology of Destruction

by Venky

Melting glaciers that are Mother Nature’s anguished tear drops

Vanishing lush canopies and spontaneous fires burning crops

Bleached corals confining beauty to phtographs in pages

Capitalism plundering resources accumulated over millions of ages.

Frustrating and making one vex

Oh so complex!

(Word Count: 41)

Don’t you just love that word. Vex. It so vexes. Though I tend to think of it as part of Jane Austen’s vocabulary, I do like to use it on occasions. And I see you’ve used it to good effect. Vexingling good effect. Now what am I going to find to rhyme with complex?
Yea, I can think of several possibilities, I’m only kidding.
