The planet scorches and smokes,
toxic fumes of mortal’s business.
Having lost it’s natural radiance,
is now crude and coarse.
The oceans wail and rage,
for their waters exploited.
Seas cry out for the life within,
and the bounty that which is plundered.
The trees moan in vain,
as humans burn them down.
Their precious resources lay wasted,
and humanity carries recklessly on.
The Sky watches silently from above,
"Oh the agony I’ve witnessed."
"I can shelter no longer the earth,
and the treasures with which we’re blessed.”
The earth once full and lavish,
now crackles in it’s parched lands.
The Sun bends down, merciless,
and the snow mountains decline.
The human race, ignorant and guilty,
are blinded by their foolishness.
They continue their ghastly criminal deeds,
unaware of the Age of Darkness.
As for me, I am human too,
guilty as much as you.
Like me, have others sung songs of nature,
and the bounty that which it beheld.
Now these will remain mere words,
ascribed on pieces of paper.
Until the spark of humanity,
is finally lit together.
The posters and slogans,
will do no good.
It’s respect that nature needs.
Refill the bounty, save what’s left,
from which our children may feed.
