Theme: Debris

Space

Populating,
Polluting,
Pillaging,
Plundering
And littering
The Earth
Is not enough.
 
Now
Homo Sapiens
Want to spread
This menace to
Space by colonising
The moon, Mars and
Venus.
 
Their own earth
They can't maintain
Peacefully as earthlings.
 
They've divided it into
Numerous countries with
Borders and boundaries,
And ravaged it with their
Wars, conflicts and
Incessant infighting.
 
But after colonising
And inhabiting the
Moon, Mars and
Venus, would they
Be sated and not
Conquer more?
 
No. Never.
How can they
Ever be sated?
 
Their need and
Greed for power,
Control and
Omnipotence
Might again
Drive them
To start
Interplanetary
Wars to show
And exert their
Supremacy.
 
And the hatred and
Bloodshed between
These warring 'human'
Colonies occupying the
Various celestial bodies,
Bloating their self-serving
Egos and feeding their
Endless avarice, will only
Woefully add to the huge
Pile of junk and space debris
Already left by the space stations
During their many space missions.
