Responsibility ( a poem of inspiration)
Accountability, being thoughtfully responsible for actions and for the futures of all,
Justifiably, adult decisions, have a lasting effect and provision for children, our call.
Flooding the world with poisoned waters, filling air breathed with gases and waste,
Clearing the earth of trees and greenery, terrible attributes in these times of haste.
Destruction of coral reefs, killing of fish and other sea creatures, such a travesty,
Dumping crude oil and chemical wastes into the pristine oceans, a catastrophe.
Continued burning and expelling black coal and its residual effects acts of insanity,
Using gasoline, as refined petroleum, as vehicle propulsion, defines impracticality.
Destroying seeds, their genetics, preventing reproduction, as incomprehensibility.
All for greed and making others dependent upon one source, a form of criminality.
Wanton eradication of all creature species, as elephants and cats, inconceivability,
The poisoning of insects responsible for pollination, as bees, certain destructibility.
The deliberate injection of chickens with steroids, so harmful, irresponsibility,
Animal's food processing, adding hormones and antibiotics, unacceptability.
Wrongful use of humans as test subjects by the drug industry, an immorality,
Abusing alcohol and opioids, a common mis-practice, as an unreasonability.
Responsibility, all's accountability, are representative of adulthood, its plausibility,
Immaturity, when given free will, prevents success, and growth, as a deniability.
Will we as species on the face of this planet, end our own lives, as a probability,
Our incessant misuse of this earth, our greatest gift of life, to be an eventuality?
