If we're free to plant,
even as tempers get worse,
absent any willing restriction
those greenhouse gardens become relevant
to living right on with a corrupted Earth
where Man's predation, ever grimly adamant,
threatens the right of whoever insists
these gathering lines of protesting verse
call Nature's end their own extinction.
