IN THE INTEREST OF FAIRNESS
It appears that man”kind”
is more the problem
than the solution
to the ever increasing loss of rain forests,
the polar ice caps
our polluted oceans, rivers and streams,
and the disappearance of the majestic species of the animal kingdom.
I wonder . . .
if nonhuman animals were in charge of the thinning out
of grossly-over-populated man”kind,”
who is the criminally-careless destroyer
of this earth
how would they choose to handle the “inconvenient situation” ?
would they club us to death,
indiscriminantly kill the mother’s of nursing babies,
destroy our communities, drive us from our homes
take away our food so that we simply died of starvation
or perhaps set iron traps that broke our bones,
leaving us there in terror and overwhelming pain
to either die alone
or to be fed upon by another species.
Or would they scare us in mass groups
so that in a desperate act of survival,
we ran together into large nets
left to die in mass prisons.
We might be excellent specimens
in a laboratory
for understanding the effects
of greed and indifference
on all of creation
Perhaps they would kill us just for the fun of it,
once dead, in ridiculous pose, sit upon our backs
and have their photos taken of the grizzly prize
awaiting pending posting
to their Facebook pages.
I don’t think so.
