POTENTIAL ROAD KILL
We’ve grown beyond our own biology.
Natures’ slow process of evolution
cannot keep pace with our technology
but needs generations for solution.
As we refine our new machinery,
We redefine the world and way we live.
We redesign our planet’s greenery,
and undermine a balance tentative –
the tipping point that we are now upon
to heal our oceans and our atmosphere.
However, we won’t leave the road we’re on
but stand helpless, immobilized by fear,
like deer in headlights, denying science,
and frozen by fossil fuel reliance.
