Paradox 13

So twisted
it's almost funny
that we humans are
instinctively scripted
to symbolically extract
our eternal youth
all sunny and yummy
from bountiful Earth
or kill it trying
addicted as we are
to the growing yet
ecocidal power
of money.

if most of us
join altogether
to gently reduce
our population
and safely recycle
our tons of waste
everything else
will fall into place.
So please don't wait.
While there's still
time remaining
spread the word
and work to return
the balance of Nature
now today before
it's too late.
