Anthropocene poem

Waste is non-reusable

We’re covered head to toe

It is inexcusable

How can we stoop so low?

 

Rubbish will envelop us

We admit way too late

Issues we must discuss

Before we are checkmate

 

Animals are dying

We realize but do nout’

It is mystifying 

How they will be wiped out

 

Our air is polluted

We try to scream but choke

The truth undisputed

Why does this not provoke?

 

The earth it is crumbling

A dreary black and white

Everyone is mumbling

But no one stands to fight.

- Jacob Talbot

This place we call our home

Destructed and destroyed

We create our own syndrome

Then act like we’re annoyed

 

Temperatures are rising

We think of in our mind

Why is it surprising

Its caused by humankind

 

The ice it is melting

We whisper to no one

Rather overwhelming

It vanishes tonne by tonne

 

Water levels rising

We see but do not say

No one compromising

Why is there such delay?

 

Oceans are polluted

We know but do not act

Why is this disputed

We have so much impact
