Nature Always Wins

Nature Always Wins

Atlantis grew to rule the seas
An earthquake hurled it through the heavens
Never found, never forgotten
Nature always wins

Port Royal erased by clawing gales
Great Tokyo fired from the earth
Twenty years later burnt from the sky

Hopeless dodos killed by bat and branch
Their murderers by germs and worms
A species destroyed is a species lost

Late Americans thought
Earth’s health might be bought
But Mother Nature does not take cash

So many fought over too little
Ethnic itches, nuclear twitches
A smart virus smarter than designed
We work now to bring all back

But every human must always die
One energy source and AIs survive
Machines can live through earthquake and fire
Heaven and hell

Nature always wins
