Farewell, Biodiversity

world without frogs,
legacy of humanity:
froglessness in our wake.
despite eons of frogsong,
a million croaks & chirps
filling spring nights till fall,
behind we leave their absence,
a void filled with buzzing biting insects.
thin-skinned, our offense too severe,
could not withstand our pollution;
we're left with silent noxious
nights, full of life but less of fun.
