Eons Of Time - Poem by Anthony Torres

That which has taken eons of time,
Man destroys with impunity, the earth in decline.
Deserts are forming under the seas,
Formerly teeming with life on flourishing coral reefs.
Some species of wildlife that lived with man on this earth
Has ceased to exist, in mans hasty quest.
Fish life in decline among many species
May deny us life when all else is depleted.
Rain forests disappearing all over the earth,
As deserts spread and drought brings us thirst.
Evolution and time is not on our side,
For that which we destroy took eons of time.
