In The World Far Too Many People - Poem by Francis Duggan

In the World far too many people of that there's little doubt
And with the increase in the human population wildlife is losing out
The Amazon rainforest trees being removed for crop growing at an alarming rate
Leaving bird and animal and insect life forms to face an uncertain fate
More creatures and insects added to the endangered list we hear of and we read
Could our extinction of other life forms to our own extinction lead?
What we do unto others to our own selves we do
This does not apply to other humans alone but to other life forms too
The human population numbers growing and other life forms becoming rare
With others creatures of the World we've not learned how to share
This World is their's to live in too though many of us do not see it that way
Extinction is forever and 'tis happening every day
A wise woman told me years ago when I was a young boy
That the World is ours to live in and not for to destroy.
