Our Footprint

Our Footprint
by Sam Doctors (samdoctors701@gmail.com)

Our footprint
grows beyond Gala’s 
ability to meet our demands.
We dip into the store of water,
we spread across the land
we foul the air with fire,
filling the air with detritus,
taking without thought
of seven generations,
or even the next,
so that others 
may in future have less and less
and the little or none.
