The Carelessness Of Man - Poem by Tony Adah

Mushrooms grew on dead palm trees
Insects took bits of aging ears
And man as always devoured the fresh stands
What if dead palms didn't spawn mushrooms?
As there's no more game in wildlife which
He has helped to extinct
Even the palm tree
Perhaps would not have been there
For he scattered it harvesting black beetle larva
Which he ate like he fainted due to hunger
Man, he will never be careful
Until everything is gone.
