A poem about the bleak ecological future humanity faces due to excessive consumerism

The beginning of the end

lies in front of me
cloudy skies
i cannot see
will there be anybody
helping me
escape from this

the wind seems warm and fuzzy
but in it breeds the virus
of superstition and ignorance
our judgement seems so bleak and dusty

Can there be a world without
consuming all of nature's goods?
Can we break this self-made curse?
Will it kill us?

Do not say
"we need to save the world"
for she will be fine
getting rid of all the parasites
leaving none of us behind

A painting with words, grimly reminiscent of Dante's Inferno. Thank you for a thought provoking share. In passing, when the final honey bee's light goes out, man will have exactly four years left to live, before everyone dies. A disturbing thought. Thank you for sharing
