They came and they ate,
Consuming Earth’s fragile state.
Trees, rocks, moss, and life,
Vanishing in endless strife.
Their hunger knew no bounds,
As they dug through the grounds.
Copper and lithium, their final feast,
Bringing the world along to a cease.
Soiled water, poisoned skies,
The price of their reckless ties.
They ate until nothing remained,
Till their own demise was ordained.
