An Epitaph For Man - Poem by Cynthia BuhainBaello

While leaves are green and bright the sun
While water flows so pristine pure
Prize these blessings before they're gone
Fouled by greed and Man's erasure.

Dread the time when Earth shall be
Naked of all these fawn and fauna-
Devoid of things that we used to see
A denuded cavern of our enigma.

With all our man-made indiscretions
The air itself will be null for breathing,
Reaping death in nuclear explosions
Perhaps in time, it's poison we're inhaling.

So here we will lie and thus be remembered:
'This is the specie created for dominion
Over plants of the Earth, all creatures and herd,
Sadly he caused all of their destruction.'
