Malignant Earth?

under ecocidal disgrace
will their cancer cell die
to shut their greedy eyes
before they metastasize
beyond this global sky
out into cosmic space
for new planets to taste,
drill, devour and waste --
or may we turn it benign
if given the right to design
a green-tech source of supply
without the violence of
profit-driven haste?
