As earth pans to summers of our estivation
We tend slumber slowly more in heat since creation.
Questioned second awakening may yet still come
Sometime many eons hence despite man’s dense and dumb.
Like a microwave oven we’ve made this place we sit.
No haste we diurnals turned holding rotisseries’ spit
But now since industrial revolution we got
It is “the hotter things get the faster they get hot.”
We take and burn stuff from underground and on the top
As if God’s earthly treasures were meant to be our crop.
On this turntable carousel we blithely whirligig.
From this lazy Susan wide we use as big fat pig.
Our merry-go-round begins to shake, rattle and roll
As all our autos we drive to pay pollution’s toll.
How did God’s well meaning man let all this come to pass?
Now some few clues here are from whence come toxic gas.
The mini-world or universe in all our toddlers’ minds
If or when they grow up will mimic their parents’ kinds.
Be candy cigarettes huge hydraulic crime all time?
To see mom and pop and most adults wax relax sublime.
Now suck this swell candy stick how wonderful it tastes.
Tables set so as you mature smoking in your bastes.
Early still from mothers’ milk nicotine babies suck.
While puff smoke put blankie on extend the pleasure, tuck.
Now hooked day-one burning stuff before we leave the nest
Brand new kids have no choice but see parents as best.
The fatal hook is now set before infants come out.
All addictors now need do is sit and watch the rout.
From candy and bubblegum cigarettes go forth
to toy soldiers,toy guns, toy planes and cars of course
On to tween bumper cars at the fair learn risks to take
Formula one and stock cars future imagoes make.
So you see from outset who and why we self-destruct
mindlessly lead to our world’s going full disrupt.
Problem is we all go way small, middle class and big
So now that we are in this hole try must stop the dig.
Furthermore please observe Topsy may be wiser than
all us grown ‘wiser’ ones who are more like Peter Pan.
The world natural as intended way it ought to be
Or is the way we go full worship technology?
