In the future, public spaces 
will be flagged 
as too dangerous

and outlawed for showcasing 
our species 
at its worst.

Even now, it doesn't take prescience  
or a doctorate of science 
in ecology to observe 

the wretched 
way humans 
unfetter themselves 

after glancing around
a protected ground, making certain
they're alone—

then start 
draining it dry
without much concern—then 

scurry off 
before the three 
bears return.
