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.
