No Holds Barred

You have a talent for dominance.
For felling forests, running rivers

dry.

You have a talent for destruction.
Wild fruit, herbs and berries fast

disappearing.

You have a talent for damage.
To ecosystems and communities.

Landslides follow in your wake.
floods drown out the cries of

victims.

Sparseness and desert an eerie
silence pervades, as life recedes.

You plunder and escape.

Reckless

with your weapons.

Immune

to caution

censure

chaos.

Can we stop you

in our lifetime?
