Extinction way


It didn’t take long here mankind’s back,

In its cars and out and about

Polluting nature one again,

Bikes and lycra put away,

Less cyclists and less joggers

More traffic jams as they flock to the beaches and forests,

Like the virus disappeared and we learnt nothing

A blip, a momentary pause in our madness,

Once again heaping on us environmental sadness,

The pause was a chance to allow us to change

But we’re taking it now and throwing it away,

So we can carry on travelling down extinction way,

Out of ignorance and arrogance while not accepting the blame.
