Increase the Population

Let’s face the honest truth
Too much of me and you
The world is over-populated
What are we gonna do?


Increase the population
Roll out the urban sprawl
Increase the population
Build houses wall to wall

I give up……

The planet can only support a finite population……

It’s a problem. I can’t see a solution bar making
it too expensive to run more than two children.
Or limiting families to two children which I don’t
think will happen.

I guess we’ll have to rely on natural calamities to
cull the numbers. Nature looking after itself.

  1. My wife and I decided to have only two children, following the “replace yourself” theory. Unfortunately, there are religions that promote having as many children as possible, declaring the use of birth control to be a sin.
