“ The Child ” ~ questions of longevity ~

Of a liveable world

Once meant for all,

What can remain

Of yet to fall,

With man’s excesses

And phlegmatic legacy

Suffers the child,

Who now has need

Question longevity,

As wary he be

Of human appetite,

Over indulging

Self-serving wants,

Fatedly damning,  

The child’s survival!
