Population Control

It’s an issue that worries world leaders
but politicians never discuss
A problem that is mathematically destined
to eventually face us

It may not burden us now,
But it will affect our offspring
It’s something hard to disallow
that seems beyond our controlling

It’s the population of human beings
It Is rapidly increasing
The world is overpopulating
We have to put a ban on breeding

But, It’s hard to stop human nature
Or moderate the human birth rate
Government can’t entirely control behavior
But they can limit our expiration date

and increase our mortality rate…

Maybe this is why war exists
why AIDS has no cure
and why poverty persists
but, what happens when the world’s capacity pushes it’s limits
I fear that government is already trying to solve this
Well, if Mother Nature doesn’t do the trick…
