Are we ready for extinction?

As the leaders of the World battle for superiority

As a quarter of the humans get ready to sleep with an empty stomach

As the academics write papers and others read the social media

As some kill and others try to survive, are we ready for extinction?

As the news channels disburse news and more

As the pretty TV men and women shout and haggle

As the powerful drop bombs on the defenseless

As the children burn and the adults flee, are we ready for extinction?

As the cold spreads and water rises in the North

As the tropics burn with no defense further South

As the autocrats take control of half the World

Ready to kill and pillage, are we ready for extinction?

As the children cry for help, it can’t be helped

As the adults freeze their brain, that could have been helped

As the billionaires look for tax havens and tax payer subsidies

As the terrestrial Martians look to the heavens, are we ready for extinction?

As the Sun spins in distress, as the Earth’s core getting ready to give up

As the magnetic poles shift fast and furious

As humans choke without Oxygen in the greenhouse

As they dig out the toxic stuff quickly, are we ready for extinction?

Humans, funny animals

Big brains with low understanding

They will eliminate themselves, it’s just a matter of time

Are we really ready for extinction?
