Paradox 9

Having rid myself
of popular delusions,
I cannot deny their end
in ecocidal Mankind,
including this man,
sentenced for life
to the global madhouse
of suicidally clever
business developers
and loyal consumers
who refuse to notice
the recently expanding
wildfires and drought,
rainstorms and flood,
bird and fish kills,
and never face reality
because all are born
instinctively addicted
to incessantly growing
their competitive struggle
to live on forever.
