NaPoWriMo 2015, Day 22: What if the earth just has a fever? (a poem)

Every prompt today seems to be an Earth Day prompt: napowrimo.net, Writer’s Digest, The Daily Poet… The first thing I always think of is George Carlin’s ‘The planet is fine’ routine, so that had some influence on my Earth Day poem…

The earth
doesn’t care about us—
not the way we think it does

Agent Smith said
that humans are a virus
a disease

When we get sick
fever helps
to attack the invaders…
