From whom among the worldly scrum will Earth’s brighter future come? Who’ll point a twitching finger to a skyline of a sickly hue and before our future’s gone, transform it from its dull and wan pallor to a richer hue? What newer race will then renew as their fathers failed to do? Who forms these saviors of the world? In what infant brain lies curled the savior of the human race?
Or will we vanish without a trace?
Nature is overwhelmed by us, regretting what we’ve cost. We’re clouding up her atmosphere and melting all her frost. She’s showing she’s indignant now by arming every gun. Before we even see them, I fear that they’ll have won. Her armaments are minuscule, but nonetheless they’ll beat us. Weapons need not be visible in order to defeat us. Determining their actions, our leaders often stumbled. They find it hard to face they’ve been outstrategized and humbled. When this mess is over, one more mess will be presented. Mother Nature will not quit ‘til mankind has repented–– cleaned up all its messes, ceased drilling for her oil, stopped polluting water and messing with her soil. If we do not listen and stubbornly persist in annoying Mother Nature, we may cease to exist.

Today we all breathe easy in our kingdom by the sea, wondering how much longer the air will still be free. We’ve heard the air is sickening and folks will have to pay to buy it in large cylinders one not-too-distant day. It’s best that people stockpile their air just like their water for that upcoming day when our weather will get hotter and we will have to stay secure within our houses and purchase air and water for our children and our spouses. Machines will roam our world for us. We think it will be best. They’ll do all our shopping and play golf at our behest. We’ll tuck away our bodies and exercise our minds as we simply view the world outside from behind our blinds. The reality show outside will be one that we all view once the air and water is not safe for me and you!!
