THE FUTURE OF ECOLOGY

Flagrantly taking all for granted Stone cold disregard and disrespect No conscience or appreciation No sense of responsibility Unable to experience awe No respect for life in all its forms Parading insolent negligence Blatantly shamelessly destroying All things are disposable to them Dispensing with their plastic clutter Contributing to nasty sewage Without a care for any impact Guilty of unabashed insolence No ounce of concern for the future Wash their hands clean of any damage No morals just here for a good time AP: 2nd place 2020 Submitted on April 6, 2020 for contest STRAND POETRY PICK 3 sponsored by BRIAN STRAND and March 24, 2018 for contest SOCIETAL DISCONTENT sponsored by BRENDAN J SIMONS

One of the worst things ever to happen to us humans is when we managed to figure out how to remove ourselves from the food chain and set ourselves up as being "superior" to other creatures. This piece really spotlights how badly we now "husband" the earth. I try to do my part, but I know it's never enough.

Brilliantly put Line, mankind is slowly destroying our beautiful planet, years ago they made things to last, but oh no, we'll make them weaker and poorer quality thus creating the throw away society and just dump the rubbish anywhere., Good luck in the contest Line. Tom

Indeed it's criminal on so many levels. Greed at any cost. Thank you so much for your visit and comment, Tom.
