Would apes have failed their mother earth?

Nature’s grave error this, I oft wonder—
Right at human history’s preamble,
Perhaps, evolution’s grievous gamble,
Or should I wax to say: gravest blunder?

Flora flourish’d much ere than fauna’s rein,
Last came man to master, manoeuvre all—
Woods, fragile weather, and life big and small,
Ozone holes, polluted skies, acid rain.

An in an over-riding greed to grow,
In futile bid to raise his signature,
He sacrificed his own child’s safe morrow,
In making his selfish day, marred Nature.

The green heritage of millions of years,
This man of grey cells, but nigh little sense,
Gambled away in greed, remorse nor tears,
Waking up late now, rushing in defence.

Had he remained an ape—whom he had tailed,
I doubt if he had the mother earth failed.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
