When more than anything
two centuries of growing
industrial debt and waste
have turned us ecocidal
without really knowing
our financial ambition
and economic haste
pollute almost everything,
instead of business as usual,
we need a global intermission
to be more wisely human
with a greener education
safely recycle 100 percent
and by female persuasion
of gentle common sense
reduce the population
for that dream we dreamt
of a decent civilization.
