Moss will not grow on a stone if someone’s there to spin it.
The genipapo needs a hand to squeeze the ink within it.
No finish line is ever crossed in one proverbial minute
without those legs that join the race and set a goal to win it.
No job has ever botched itself unless a human blows it.
Knowledge is not knowledge until somebody knows it.
A car without a human foot can’t pick up any speed.
What good are pears or apples without a mouth to feed?
No tail’s pinned on a donkey without a hand to pin it.
What transgression could exist without a man to sin it?
Even guilt would not exist without human compunction.
In short, the Earth’s in need of us to fulfill every function.
The Gods must be mistaken when they censure us and cuss us.
In truth, we make the world go ’round. Where would it be without us?
Poem inspired by the film “Don’t Look Up.” Too, too close in its depiction of our present day world.
