Planet Earth



Once upon a time, there was a planet called earth

A blue marble where life had given birth


It had bacteria, whales and bees

Ants, dinosaurs and monkeys


It had such a diversity of species

Until it became the land of human entities


Humans were two legged apes with nifty fingers

They walked upright and were oxygen breathers


Not long after they evolved

The planet had transformed


They filled it with cities, agriculture and waste

Most other animals were captivated or erased


Their population grew exponentially

So did their abilities technologically


They discovered that the earth was a globe

But they remained divided with colourful robes


They had emperors, queens and gods

They had rockets, computers and jobs


Their biggest threat was themselves

They fought over resources and wealth


They never stopped killing each other

There was always an imbalance in power


They had an abundance of food and stuff

But somehow most humans never had enough


Everything they did was traded and sold

Very little was free and very few were bold


The story of homo sapiens didn’t last for long

In less than a million years they were gone


Like a scrape of a fingernail with a sharp knife

Humans lasted a tiny fraction of earths entire life


They did leave some traces

But not much remains over the ages


Even a human knows

Everything comes and goes
