The population explosion is a direct result of over abundance - we are as mice responding to availability.

From the first farming communities to the industrial revolution the world has seen consequent increases in population resulting in overcrowding causing wars, disease, persecutions, natural disasters etc..

Since the beginning each succeeding doubling of population has occurred in successively shorter periods – the latest period less than 40 years (1960-1996).

Our eco-system can no longer maintain itself. Our balancing mechanisms are schemed ultimately because women still give deference to natural instinct over intellect.

Women, as always, hold the key to survival.

Percolating to wholeness
Attempts to grow
Truth defined in terms we sow
Back to the baseline for another go.

'What is important?' you may ask
Procreation is important, completes the task
Keep them coming - don't even ask
Why so few reveal the mask.

Percolating to wholeness, a brew confined
Never reaching to solve time's trial
Find the baseline, achieve the mind
Live your life safely declined.

The children grow, reflections to view
Now and then a stronger brew
Mostly though, they step in line
To pay the beast they dare not find.

Seeing no further than their feed
Building security defined by need
Continuing the recycling bleed
Ignorance has the world diseased.

The children smile and love you true
Like the mother you once knew
They reflect the best of you
You sit back and enjoy the view.

Now, you live your life declined
Expect your children to be more than you
You will push them to excel
You will guide them to your hell.

Percolating to wholeness, no gain to tell
Split personalities to make us well
Living through the seeds that swell
Truth denied, all lost in hell.

From Love we came to become the same
To find our common soulful name
To reach beyond the recycle game
To become the stillness from whence we came.

I am "afraid" that I have to agree with many of the points that you put forth here, Tom. There are too many of us on this planet and chaos seems to be propagating speedily. Thank you. Love and peace to you,

You bring out a few very good points and over indulgence is certainly one of them.......

Be safe,
