A Billion Earths


planet killers
we drifted on
found more earths
to leach from

our bodies weak
we began to tweak
any atmosphere
for our bones and lungs

for our needs
are one
death and cancer
to all nature
under any sun

seeding the clouds
carving the land
building cities high
always to expand

war and genocide

odds a million
to one
a billion earths
to kill from

space our laboratory
always destroying
always hoping
to survive just one rerun
