The Earth Abides


Our cells talk languages of time across the ages.

Our sad history belies the word of countless sages

Our wild diversity trickles and dries drop by drop.

And we become the devastating mono crop.

Verdant glades and warm wet earth erodes,

We the fat obscurant wheedling nematodes

Consume in weeping sliding slashed gashes,

We cut and burn and slowly drown in ashes.

Molecule by molecule we denigrate our worldly rule.

We are the greatest of the great, the ignorant fool.
