A fish flew out of the water. Nobody knew why until he spoke, he carried a warning for Mankind. The fish looked human. I need to talk to the CEO's, he said. They came, the fish spoke. If you don’t stop making and throwing plastics, trash and garbage in the oceans, seas, and rivers, your planet will die. Captains of Industry be wary you who create the products that pollute Do you think you’re safe? Take note that when you see the small of life disappear life in the oceans and seas will vanish, the demise of rivers replete with pestilence will dry up the human race will then take its turn at being extinct You have made billions at the expense of life on earth, receiving a billion dollars for every life you sacrificed billions you were sure were safely tucked away in hide-a-way banks But now, your life and family are destroyed by a war you financed doesn't give you much consolation does it, Mr. Businessman? Your insatiable greed finally won out. No living creature is left, cities and forests have been decimated no place left to spend your well planned looting; you could have saved many lives Except you didn’t care your endless greedy pursuit to increase profits condemned the world to the black hole of extinction You financed the annihilation of all living creatures As you were killing the world, you also set in motion the removal of Man’s historical struggle from the story of the Universe Making Man a thing that never was and never existed In this impending historical vacuum, Man became collateral damage the term you notoriously used to justify your murderous behavior. Even now, engulfed in the fires of Hell, you seek absolution through deals, but your reasoning is false Lucifer welcomes your ilk, he's proud of you but he makes no deals.
