Two Week Notice – A Poem

First was the moon, who withdrew all her light

The tides stood silent, and black was the night

Next was the sun, who held fast in the sky

One hemisphere dark, and no one knew why

Then all the animals left us behind

Forests embraced them; no more could we find

All crops dried to dust, from oats to fruit trees

Vessels and swimmers were crushed by the seas

Even the insects went still in the skies

Leaders spoke out, but they only said lies

Truth became clear as the sweltering sun

Sweet nature yet lived, but mankind was shunned

We took too much which she never owed us

So she resigned, with no two week notice
