Now Today

Even while
money madmen struggle
at despoiling the Earth
for the wealth and power
of extreme technology,
this polluted biosphere
struggles for return
to its primal ecology
by the fatal measure
of reducing life-support
in ever-worsening
extremes of weather.
But why would we ever
trash ourselves extinct
if we let Mother Liberty
enlighten our freedom
to think?
