The Only Hope

Here’s yet another upbeat contribution:

The Only Hope

The end was foreordained
with the invention of the steam engine
the saboteurs saw it
the internal combustion engine
Rachel Carson saw it
nuclear fission
and the incessant breeding of ever more people
Paul Ehrlich saw it

that kills us
poisoning the air
and suffocating the planet
Can we save ourselves?
No … the show is over
Now science fiction solutions
if any
are the only hope
