As decades of Data delivered the facts,

the Terrible Truth was filtered by Hacks,

tho diluted with Trivia it seeped through the cracks

as the Evidence mounted in tottering stacks,

that We have the honour, the noted distinction,

of being the Cause of the Earth’s Sixth Extinction.

As the Holocene Holocaust Horror unfolds

 it’s harder to hide now Humanity’s role

in adding more names to the Extinction Roll

than Comets, Volcanoes or Glacial Cold,

an Achievement so vast one should surely admire Us,

a Species more deadly than some toxic Virus.

We’re the “Top ‘o the Food Chain!”-yeah, that’s what we think

But the Card-house is crumbling and with it We sink

into layers of Fossils like some Missing Link

and Future Geologists? They won’t even blink,

when they find the remains of a Creature like us,

they’ll just toss us back into the hole with disgust.
