Modern Earth is left in a stunning dichotomy
Where the purity of nature holds hands
With the dirty excess of humanity
Days of summer spent enjoying the sands
Give way to fearing cancerous holes of insanity
Where a walk through the park will leave you
Breathing in air of poison
The poor fish you catch in your canoe
Swim in black, for your reasons
Where Mother Nature sometime forgets
When to change her own season
But they aren’t the only ones who suffer.
His own favourite medicine,
Man will taste.
There are kids who eat from their neighbour’s waste
And all of this because of man’s mistakes
However, Mother Nature is no silent victim
She punishes her children for her current condition
For earthquakes, floods, tsunamis, there is no signing a petition
Mother Nature says “Please my children, broaden your vision”
But still, the land, they continued to blight
With their eyes closed, and ears held tight,
Disappointed, at her children’s slight
Ignorant of their own existential plight.
For not all participated in their universal fight
Some worked against seeing, too short their sight.
It is not too late to heal this land.
To reclaim this fight from government hands
If we work towards a cleaner plan
Maybe there will be time left on Earth for Man.
