Terminal Careers

While this slowly shrinking
yet living planet Earth
supports everyone's life
big business profiteers
are killing it with more
commercial growth for
billions more consumers
despite spreading masses
of global pollution anywhere
and extreme weather everywhere
so madly obsessive are they
to manage ever more money
few relent to see any
real consequences,
though safe recycling and
peaceful family planning
would soon return everyone
to their rational senses.
