Another interesting parable about the inevitable consequences of continued and continuous consumption. Have you read Dinosaurs and All That Rubbish by Michael Foreman? It's a splendid children's picture book which has a similar theme and a happily ever after ending. In the end, no matter what, green will prevail. Excellent poem. love, Allie xxxx
There is a very popular book out now called The World without Us. This poem reminded me of it. No question that we'll pay if we don't acknowledge that the earth has a finite limit of resources and that we have to live within those limits. Good poem.
