They say we’ve evolved
but what have we evolved into.
Beasts that destroy everything in our path
in order to hoard something we ourselves have created,
money, stuff, status,
idols we bow to daily
and sell our future for.

Creatures that kill when not hungry
to get more of what we already have.
A species so self-important
that survival is not the reason for our actions anymore.

Being first, being great, having more,
hoarding what will never sustain us
seems our only reason for existence.

Sounds like a recipe for extinction to me.
