Humanity is an Extinction Level Event — Quills 2016 Honorable Mention
Apocalypse

Some say a rock will fall from space,
some say a bug
will decimate the human race
and leave this Earth a poisoned place.
The truth's ignored with but a shrug.
Rainforests gasp their dying breath
'cause exploitation is our drug.
Through Nature's death
our graves we've dug.
