Today I read a book
A novel set in space
It depicted the bleak end
Of the human race

It was set in future times
Many years from now
It predicted our doom
And it detailed how

We wiped our planet out
Through wars and pollution
How we failed to change our ways
How we ignored obvious solutions

I suppose it was quite sad
A reflection of our times
A punishment quite fit
For environmental crimes

So perhaps I missed the point
And you may think I’m a fool
For the lesson that I took
Is that spaceships are quite cool
