human race

we didn’t hear
‘on your mark’
we started late
on a painstakingly
slow pathway
to evolution,

we ignored
‘get set’
we made
callous mistakes,
took mother earth
for granted,
polluted, populated
and created
irreversible change,

we endangered species
that couldn’t cope
we threatened 
their every hope,

we continued to
race forward
when all signs said
we pillaged
tipped the scales
and disrupted the
delicate balance.

Now we’re battling
against heavy odds
so close to the finish,
at what cost
could we win this?
