Hope in the Anthropocene
In the Cenozoic Holocene, man took dominion of the earth
and catalyzed the Anthropocene, mass extinction number six.
Our actions driving life’s diversity to slip between the cracks
of several, severed food webs that cannot be reattached.
Some claim it is a landslide and there’s no going back.
The evidence is truly frightening, but I still must object.
Eden may be disappearing but we haven’t lost it yet.
Our time on earth is limited so now it’s time to act.
Educate yourself on endangered species to protect.
Breed & eat responsibly so our food pyramid won’t collapse.
Take the time to pick up litter & better manage trash.
for there’s still chance that we might see
another epoch, era, or century.
It’s all up to you & me.
