Next Ice Age or Not?

Anthropocene

 

How healthy would

our earth be today if

humankind was just

another kind of monkey?

 

The grass and the crickets

may again re-inherit

the earth without ruining it.

Either way:

 

the planet will keep

turning on its axis

and the wind may still

inspire the raven to fly.

 

Could the yellow

Aspen foretell that

the evergreen Lodgepole

would burn flame?

 

The climate warms,

The ice caps shrink,

greenhouse gasses multiply

and our atmosphere is thin.

 

What some men have

stolen during this last

mechanized century

cannot be given back.

 

Our species continues

to gamble with our world

when hell is the debt

and Lucifer takes no gold.
