Overpopulation is the cause
Overpopulation is the cause of the pain.
Eight billion mouths to feed.
Sixteen billion feet head off in search of food.
While the population breed.
They are chopping down the trees
Killing everything that moves.
Providing for their children and
Ignoring anyone who disapproves.
But there’s only so much wilderness
So many creatures to eat.
They are battling against nature
And inflicting a defeat.
We can’t go on chopping down the forests and killing everything. There are limits.
With eight billion mouths needing feeding, huge numbers of fish to be dragged from the water, massive amounts of land cleared and used for agriculture, we are reaching the limit.
Our sheer numbers are destroying the world.
