Planetary Parameter

all life must
kill and devour
life to live,
we humans who
posture so many
opposing credos
make the very best
and absolute worst of it
as most of whatever
intelligence we possess
instinctively serves
our growing billions
of competeing egos,
our expanding economy
on this shrinking planet,
now gagging on our
garbage and feces,
has no future
unless both return
to their natural order
before all of us are
nothing more than
a self-endangered
animal species.
