Extinction

First there was three
then only two
finally there was one
it disappeared, too.

Whole species of plants
and animals are becoming
rapidly extinct
as we burn habitats
pollute land and sea
and you think this
couldn’t happen
to you and to me?

We must stop this insanity
or there will be no more tomorrow
just what could have been.

A baby of today
where will he play
a waste land of chemicals
and greed.

Soon there will be
no more elephants
orangutans, monarchs
to name a few
sad to say
if things don’t change
this list will contain
me and you.
