We all recognize them well.
The number of times we've battled.
An enormous number to tell.
Our world is shrinking.
Our society is shriveling away.
We're destroying our living planet.
Watching our world decay.
I don't intend to create a huge fuss.
Employ a moment.
Our enemy is US!
*The inspiration for this poem comes from the comic strip "POGO" created by Walt Kelly
that first appeared in newspapers on Earth Day 1971
