what we're doing to the earth
The earth remains stoic
on the brink of ruination,
helpless to the destruction
wrought by humankind.

Blind, or impassive to
the damage we are spawning
we continue to be
the most invasive species.

Prompt(s): brink, impassive
Line Count: 8
Poet's Note: Invasive Species: Any species that has been introduced to an environment where it is not native, and that has since become a nuisance through rapid spread and increase in numbers, often to the detriment of native species. Although their spread can have beneficial aspects, invasive species adversely affect the invaded habitats and bioregions, causing ecological, environmental, and/or economic damage.
