the classics

they say there is life outside but i do not believe them. it's been twenty years since the last tree stood down on earth. over half the remaining population has bought tickets for their planned migration to mars. those who can afford to have. we really burned this earth. only photos remain of whales and lions and elephants. the census comes now every 3 months and by last measure humanity numbered under five million. the elders have memories of forests and birds and snails. i have not enough money to afford to go. i guess this is my fate. i burn these books but only to stay warm. i've long since exhausted titles by climate change deniers. biographies of pop culture icons. poorly written ghost writer crap. god forbid the day i have to tap into the classics.
