The Rush

You should hurry and kill us...

We are overpopulating the earth.
Those are your words.

If you shared your gluttonous wealth
there would be plenty.

You have been fortunate,
or is it insidious?

Perhaps you don't even know

The time is coming...
It is now.

Be quick...
Jack jump over the candlestick,
before it becomes an erupting volcano.
