I wonder

I often wonder how

Long this world can last

We strip the trees

We strip the ocean

Then fill the world with garbage


And to it’s credit

Gaia takes it all

Churns out some organic matter

But when we started

Making plastics

It’s like the world did not matter


And now our oceans

Feed our fish

Small plankton like

Pieces of plastic

I wonder just how

Viable this life is.

  1. Love this poem, it’s as if our intelligence is ironically killing the planet and ultimately us.
