When ... Then

When Icebergs, en masse, Journey towards the equator
When glaciers and icefields and snowcaps melt sooner rather than later
When sea levels rise, islands die with saltwater as the terminator
When acid rain makes marshland unfit for the frog and the alligator
When the air we breathe is so impure we have to use a respirator
When the water we drink has to be cleaned with a decontaminator
When food is grown with a carcinogenic chemical cultivator ...
Then, we will realise earth's demise with man as the facilitator
