With The Huge Increase In The Human Population - Poem by Francis Duggan

With the huge increase in the human population in the World of today
The creatures of Nature to our kind must give way
Due to the destruction by us of their habitat many wild species becoming rare
Of living space we do take more than our share
Some people of Nature's resources take more than they need
The english word for such a practice is greed
Out of Nature's resources billions in money they do make
Yet they never give to her only from her take and take
Far too many trees for so called development have been cut away
For that in global warming that leads to droughts and famines we pay
Stories of more climate refugees we hear of and read
Our environmental practice to our own extinction to us well may lead
And despite humanity's many great achievements we fail to realize
That to abuse the one who clothes and feeds us is not clever or wise.
