Earth
spins on,
constantly
counting the time
hoping we humans
will not murder ourselves
or her, our mother, as well
Earth’s environment is dying
communities are failing to boot.
Could this be some heavenly punishment
some retribution for killing God’s son
amazing, the things we justify
seeking murderous salvation
wipe ‘em out, push ‘em aside
allow gluttonous rule
while masses suffer
thinning the herd
on this poor
spinning
Earth

No easy feat this... creating the aesthetics while keeping the meaning in the words. I esp. liked the expressions "seeking murderous salvation" and "communities failing to boot." Your bookends weren't lost either.
