Poetry – Hardly Started

Hardly Started

We’ve hardly started

Yet we’re already near the end.

In no time at all

We’ve overrun the planet

With numbers out of control

We’re setting a vile trend.

We’ve set the world alight

And are continuing to fan it.

Opher – 4.11.2020

It looks like we could take ourselves out. We are a new species with a spectacular rise in numbers. We think we are so clever we set ourselves apart from all other life, put ourselves on a pedestal.

We’re in danger of knocking ourselves off (and take everything else with us).

When more intelligent creatures, in some future time, come to look at our legacy, they’ll find a layer of rock rich with our bones along with a dearth of other forms of life. We will have killed them all off.

They will see humans as just another monkey.

Our arrogance and greed will be our downfall.
