Stalked – a poem about overpopulation.

Stalked

 

Stalked by our own virility

The cthonic monster of fertility

Will drown us in our own flesh.

 

The Malthusian oceans of humanity

Riding swells of pleasure and vanity

Have snared us in its mesh.

 

Like a flood

Inundating

The Earth

Sweeping all before it.

 

Like a fire

Consuming

The land

Turning it to ash

 

Like a plague

Infecting

The body

Dissolving the breath

 

Swamping everything

Reducing everything

Killing everything

In the pangs of pleasure.

The flood of humanity is consuming the earth, destroying the forests, slaughtering all creatures and leaving smog, pollution and devastation in their wake.

We are busy turning this beautiful green planet into a sterile ball of concrete, plastic and bacterial slime.

It’ll take us some time but the project is well under way.

Unless we put an end to this capitalist religious impetus for more, for growth and expansion we will destroy the very thing that gives us life and nourishes our souls.
