Crossing The Sustainability Rubicorn

The blue planet unfolded the canvas of primal beauty
of the unique dot of singularity in the infinite cosmos,
revolved around sun, its star, spinning astral dreams,
until on evolution trail hostile species of man arrived.

The unspoilt nature once thrived in realm of splendor
in harmony with the tenets of stable innate equilibrium.
As the pace of wanton exploitation marches on and on
it is now crossing unheeded the sustainability rubicorn.

The creeping swarm of ingesting insect called progress
devours the green blanket spread out over the ages,
constructs the toxic greenhouse on the planet instead,
extreme climate events track global warming trajectory.

Glaciers and ice sheets melt, the cryosphere shrinks,
the rise of sea-level unprecedented in human history
makes the ingress of oceans on-land a future reality.
Time would then come to invent modern Noah’s ark.
