Heavy Rotation

This spinning orb glues us down

Planted on this habitat we call home

In moonlight, tides rock back and forth

Overcrowded, yet hunter/gatherers we roam

Invisible forces, magnetic pulses

Trusting what cannot be seen

Billions of stars alone in space

More perfect than any machine

The human heart is the only true power

Thermo, nuclear, chemical reactions

Natural laws weaponized for greed

Destiny teetering on mortal redactions

Each day, borrowing against the future

Reducing infinite into finite

Maybe just a speed bump to extinction

In the heavens, a dimming light
