To dam, or not to dam: that is the question,

whether tis nobler to suffer

the loss of farmland by powerful flooding,

or by solar, wind and conservation, geothermal too,

to craft another path to the energy we’ll need

to stave off the climate-monster,

and save the farmland for growing food

under the peaceful sky.
