'' We Humans Had Stripped Them All Bare '' - Poem by Bri Mar

The Human race,
Can’t keep up the pace,
The population is now out of control,
Some believe there’s a future in space,
Their thoughts this helps to console.

Our trip to the stars,
Started with Mars,
We believed we’d a good understanding,
Like our Earth it had similar scars,
This discovery was very demanding.

Jupiter beckoned,
A good life we reckoned,
We’d soon have her whipped into shape,
The problem was after a second,
We realised there had been an escape.

Soon Saturn appeared,
Then as the clouds cleared,
There was evidence of life in the past,
Whoever lived there had not been aware,
Their lifestyles meant they’d all been gassed.

With Uranus in view,
We’d start life anew,
This was a planet to behold,
Evidence of past life did cause us strife,
We believed it was far too cold.

Next Neptune in line,
All would be fine,
But soon we’d be feeling fear,
The planets atmosphere we could not refine,
Who’d ruined it just couldn’t be clear.

Back to Mercury we headed,
Our nerves were unsteadied,
Our very existence was under attack,
The truth was exactly what we dreaded,
From now there was no going back.

Venus the last,
A glimpse of our past,
Was soon appearing in view,
The evidence left us all aghast,
What we suspected turned out to be true.

In darkness we drift,
We’ve destroyed our gift,
Our destruction had come to the fore,
Now our demise we hoped would be swift,
All the planets had been wrecked to the core.

It’s too late for shame,
We were to blame,
There are no planets to live on out there,
For mass destruction we’re in the frame,
