Poem: Man explores outer space
with probes and rocket ships,
while here the human race
falls from the shaking tips
of balance; wars, famine,
waste, hunger, crime, disease
and man's greed have worsen
this world's endless crises.
Why not spend the money
on this Earth where there's need
first, then chase outer space
at light-speed once we're freed
from what afflicts our race?
If not, we'll be replaced!...
