Naive Humans

How naive we were,
thinking changing climate was nothing more
than warming temperatures
and rising water.
Oh, but that which adapts quickest isn’t human.
It was bacteria that locked us away,
made us prisoners on the planet we thought we’d conquered.
Naive humans.
Silly humans.
Oh, the irony, thinking domination created harmony.
And so our side of the scale sank beneath the rising tide…
