by Sloane Shapiro 


Someday, quite a while from now,

grandchildren will hear stories of days long past.

Days of age and mortality

Of pain and monotony

The days where greed ruled

and children starved

while corporations thrived.

They will gasp when they hear

How people dreamed of money

Instead of luscious forests

And colorful oceans.

They will weep as they hear

How we valued convenience

over conservation.

When they look up at a sky full of stars,

they will understand why

the blue planet's twinkle

looks so grey.
