Future Planning - Poem by Alan Bruce Thompson
When the oil runs out, and the water’s gone,
We’ll ask what we did to our planet, our home?
But wait a minute, we need reason here,
Let’s not get caught up in panic and fear.
Who are the opponents? these prophets of doom?
“The economy will collapse if we don’t consume”.
How dare you speak out against industrial might,
Keep your mouth sealed, keep out of sight!
For the moment we want riches, the problems should ignore,
With our lust for resources, it’s the earth that we should bore.
