Poetry – There’s room enough

There’s room enough

There’s room enough

On this Ark,

As long as the landlord

Does not clog up the place

With progeny.

There’s room enough

For all of life,

Unless the tenant

Fills the rooms

With loot.

There’s room enough

For all to breathe

And blossom,

Unless the director

Feels there’s

Profit to be made.

There’s room enough

There should be room enough for every type of life to live. There should be more than enough space for all of life’s profusion.

The planet is not huge but it is large enough. It used to be sufficient.

It no longer fits the bill.

It is a rock flying through space. It is alone and self-contained. It has sun, water and atmosphere. There is warmth and light enough for life.

This is our Ark.

We are all on the same boat. There is enough to go around.

Except that one species wants it all.

I'd like to hear from you...
