The Outdoors

September 6, 2018

The world has changed. 
For better or for worse?

Long ago people cherished the outdoors. 
Now we see it zooming through cars on highways.
We see it on our phones.
We cover it with smog.
We cover it with cities. 

So many ecosystems have lost their lives in this war we are fighting.
They know we have the upper hand. 
We know it too.
Animal parents fear that their kids won’t be home when they get back.
Baby animals fear that the bad man will kill mom or dad. 

We once cherished the outdoors.
We needed it. 
We took it for granted. 
We no longer need it. 

We can kill the ecosystems. 
The animals will still be there.
The plants will still be there. 
Trees will replant. 

We don’t need air.
We don’t need natural food. 
We can just eat chemicals. 
We can buy packages of air. 
I guess this poem was pointless.
We don’t need nature at all.
