Quite A Scary Thing - Poem by Francis Duggan

When we look towards the future a future can we see
For all of the races of the World who make up Humanity
In a World of six billion plus people the pressure on Nature's reserves are great
And with climate change now Worldwide we worry for our fate
The signs of global warming around us everywhere
And human damage done to the Planet too late now to repair
For our crimes against our Mother Earth the price will be huge to pay
What suffering awaits us who knows or who can say
Many species of life forms of the Planet because of us extinct
And so many species endangered and on the extinction brink
We bulldoze more land every day and we cut the tall trees down
And disposess the wild and free for to enlarge the town
The World's population is six billion and growing what will the future bring?
Just thinking of it i do find is quite a scary thing.
