Our world is reeling under a modern plague,

Toxins burn its skin and oil courses through each vein

Earth’s wounds fester as the plague propagates

Breaking down every defence at a destructive rate


Taking root soon after the Paleogene extinction,

This disease honed the art of rampant growth to perfection

As destructive as an uncontrolled cancer

It obliterated every bubbling brook and each verdant pasture


Stronger and mightier became the destroyer

Thinking itself a more accomplished artist than the Creator

“Development” and “advancement” was the lexicon new

Engulfing and overpowering all but a few


Quivering in its wake, we cannot come to the realisation,

The disease is destroying our very civilisation

“But how do we control this monster?” you may ask me

Well, Watson, it’s simply elementary,

Just look into the mirror and you shall see

The disease is nothing but humanity!
