Every last man jack
It's in our very nature to destroy,
a destiny we seem intent to bear;
annihilate the things that give us joy,
or worse, treat Mother Earth with laissez-faire.
The arrogance we humans have, I swear;
to think that we can gouge, take all we need,
not realise we make the planet bleed.
But like a cornered beast, it's fighting back;
and if we do not soon wake up, take heed
She will have us all, every last man jack!
