Some people like to copy and paste the challenge image into their posts. That’s okay with me.
Sites to help:
Merriam-Webster.com Use this site for syllables. I’ve used several online counters and too many have given different counts for the same word, so I use the dictionary now. Also, in some parts of the English speaking world, the syllables may come out in the spoken language a bit differently. And that’s okay. Write to enjoy, too learn, and yes, try to get the syllables right, but above all create and enjoy.

No lightning, no thunderous clap,
just a tormenting stretch of heat,
little shade, no place to retreat,
each movement, a boiling death wrap.
Our earth needs a better mousetrap,
a climate reboot, a new way
to salvage time, life, save the day,
for nothing yet has won our hearts,
our riven political parts:
human folly, a dragon to slay.
