Soylent Green - Poem by Paul Warren

I was watching the Soylent Green movie
With Charlton Heston made in 1973
The world was a mess with a population mass
From the effect of greenhouse gases

Humid and hot all year around
Nothing would grow in polluted ground
I remember seeing it in the movies when it was made
And thinking that it went too far in the future grade

But looking at it now with a new perspective
And I now feel that I can't be more selective
At what I believe the future will be without a fuss
Being nearer the truth even now for us.
