just one more drop of water (they said) one more piece of wood one more fish one more burnt fossil one more piece of plastic in the sea one more carbon emission one more hole in the ozone one more melting glacier one more oil spill one more dead in the forest and the ocean and the air one more degree raise in the world temperature one more wildfire one more minute on our phones one more minute of tweeting and picture posting and crying over our streaks being broken one more minute of scientific advancements one more minute of silence one more minute of the world turning bankrupt in front of us one more minute of our wilful ignorance one more of trusting, trusting, trusting that it can recover itself one more minute of destroying but no restoring, of taking but no giving back one more minute of not even trying, telling ourselves it is no use, things are too far gone one more minute of never questioning the reason behind it one more minute of not taking the blame one more (they said) just one more not realizing that all these ones will build up to a million. a million more drops and emissions and minutes and things taken and not given back not realizing that the world: it can't even afford one more let alone a million. it's in too deep to even afford debt. not realizing that when you can't afford anything, not even debt you're forced to sell. sell your belongings. and then the world will say: just one more, one more flood one more earthquake one more drought one more storm one more homeless one more hungry one more thirsty one more dying one more dead and another one and another one and another one until these ones, too, will build up to a million. and the world won't be able to do anything. because when the humans ask for more and the world can't afford anything, (because they took it all away and gave nothing back) it's forced to sell. itself. or them. or both.
