Poetry – The Human Flood

The Human Flood

One million victims

Of the human flood.

One trillion fossils,

No longer flesh and blood.

A holocaust of thoughtlessness;

An Armageddon by intent.

Caused by human hands,

A catastrophic event.

From pesticide and chainsaw;

From pollutant and gun;

From climate change to farming;

We’re killing every one.

They have nowhere to go,

No means to escape.

We’re harrying them to death

In an everlasting rape!

One million victims

Of the human flood.

One trillion fossils,

No longer flesh and blood.
