Annals of the Afroasiatic Pioneers, Vol. 2 #23
Context — Annals of the Afroasiatic Pioneers Vol 1 is undergoing illustration. (!) (!!) Annals Volume 2 is being written. Proof excerpt, involving climate change and the youth bulge in east Africa:
The swirling talk was anxious, voiced in haste
by heads perturbed by change the world brought
to them unwelcomed, carbons unreplaced
forced weather patterns locally unsought.
A hundred thousand duplicates–or more–
had had, were having, or would soon have this
fraught conversation of what heretofore
was land without a mass indebtedness.
These echoes nationwide came oft from youth,
whose prevalence was at historic highs,
whose futures would be shaped by said crime’s truth
while villains everywhere such blame disguised.
Such problems of the commons, common are.
But new was their effect so felt afar.
