“Pack Your Bags For Planet Exxon! (a poem by KPKeelan )

.

Yikes!

Running out of room!

Real estate: unsustainable!

We’ve used up all the resources we could exploit.

No drinkable water!

No breathable air!

Too many people.

Not enough food.

Bad for business!

What are we going to do?

Where are we going to go?

We turn to our mothballed scientists.

Quick!

Scan the heavens

for another Earth!

Is there another vulnerable orb we can use?

Yes! Look!

There are 70 of them, so far!

All the right size

close enough to their suns to be warm

far enough away not to fry.

Could it be? Is it possible?

They have water!

Great.

Let’s go consume and destroy another planet.

For those who can afford it:

ALL HAIL PLANET EXXON!
