One poem by Gary Beck

Out of Control

Everything in nature
eats, or is eaten.
Natural selection
regulates existence,
until human interference
alters the balance of life,
condemning many species
to untimely extinction
by destruction of habitat,
poisonous environment
eliminating the blue bird,
extending the time of the rodent,
while those who see the danger
lack sufficient resources
to prevent untimely demise.
