Metabolic Revolution of Our Ecosystem - by - Bob Atkinson

(c)2016 Bob Atkinson

we've see a sign today of
"a metabolic revolution in the ecosystem"
something someone said
to give credence to evolution

a far fetched lack of understanding
no firm fixed wonder in our time
how could we devolve so quickly
while thinking we're expanding minds

I revel in older books
language intricate and sincere
nothing glossed over quickly
as currently I fear

fear we've gone to surface mode
not really thinking when we pine
for produce constructed with a thought
toward survival of our kind

our kind seems to us not all
of humanity's varieties
only those around us close
who look like you and me

therein lies a quality
invoked as sincere
but truly taking us to task
by playing on our fears

fears our children won't succeed
survive this frozen waste
because our capacity to proceed
gets diminished by our haste

haste which leaves our goals intact
but takes a step out from our rung
a simple precept dominating not
where we're going, but where we're from
