A Huge Population - Poem by Francis Duggan

A huge population in the World of six billion or more
And the numbers increasing as never before
And people dying of hunger and in war zones every day
Life for most not easy 'twould be fair to say
And though there always has been a social divide
The gap between the haves and the have nots keeps growing ever wide
The one who supports all life forms from the great to the small
Mother Earth the one we do not treat well at all
But she is the greatest when all is said and done
For she is the one who survives everyone,
The human population is on the increase
And amongst each other we find it hard to live in peace
And the social gap has never been wider than it is today
Suppose that is life as some are known to say.
