We are addicted
to the power of growing
our wealth from growing
our economy by growing
our hungry population,
even though planet Earth
cannot swell and expand
to superabundantly
and inexhaustibly
supply ever more of us
with more of everything
At last we are
billions starving
from not enough
land and water.
