Apex Predator Irony

Our attributes helped us excel

In ruling the world where we dwell;

But without these same traits,

We’d not seal our fates 

By blowing the whole place to hell.

Homo Sapiens

This animal always has said:

“I’m the greatest thing since sliced bread!”

But now overshoot

Shows a dumb swinish brute

That’s very soon going to drop dead.

The Food Pyramid

To live, we all must compete 

Against others we cannot not defeat;

As resources deplete,

Some will cheat with deceit

To have enough people to eat.

We evolved. and right from then on,

Bursting with promise and brawn,

We thought we were clever,

We’d live on forever—

But “poof!” just like that, we’ll be gone.

I can’t take much more of the hate

And knowing what’s coming: our fate,

The suffering, lying,

Everyone dying—

There’s not too much longer to wait.

The Indifference of Overshoot

By studying nature we learn 

Of a species’ normal concern;

Though unbearably sad,

It’s not ‘cause we’re bad,

But simply that now it’s our turn.

Rational thought wasn’t wrong—

The reptilian brain was too strong;

We just couldn’t solve 

How to better evolve,  

And that’s why we’re saying “so long.”
