Extinction – the Facts

Our human crowd expands unchecked,

we grab more land, we scour the sea;

there’s nowhere else – our wastes collect,

polluting you and me.

Animals we take to feed us,

insects we have killed as pests,

plants are either crops or weeds

– our attitude, expressed.

The more they have, the more we want,

he won’t hold back so why should I?

This juggernaut won’t stop – it can’t,

helpless, we stand by.

We steal from earth to lounge in heaven,

those to come inherit hell

– rebirth’s not what we believe in.

Time will surely tell.
