The day we left Earth behind
Grown sickly, toxic its seas choked with human invention a planet grown alien in our time, the day we left Earth behind. We built rockets using a science, once used to feed the universal lust for the latest trend, the day we left Earth behind. Abandoned were the zoos that held a few remaining specimens of a species that had gone inexplicably missing in the wild. Lost beneath rubble and rubbish were the bones of a great medicine man who told of an earth born of wind and spirit, the day we left Earth behind.
