The dearth of Earth

There is an urge inside my gut
Nay, tis in my soul
Mother Nature, unsure of her place
Watches her gift being shoved back in her face
who will wipe the tear, and with what,
perhaps she will growl, destroyed and fraught

We bond with horses, and our ‘domestic’ pets
we intuit their love we are capable you see
wrapped in us, we care shit for a tree!

Beautiful people give their life for the planet
when others are greedy, and then God dammit
destroy everything for self gratification
rhino horn aphrodisiac and soup from shark fin.

If we really want harmony with all beings
why bayonet our brothers when we are all 19,
some politicians set us up for such things
when did we get so cross with everything

Will we ever have what it takes
to stop with the fishing til we fill up the lakes
to finally see the love in this place
will she replace us with a more grateful race?

Is the Earth turning us in
with her landslides and quakes
she will only do whatever it takes

Do we really need to tear down rain forests
to stake the million dollar mansions before us
our greedy boxes with seven sinks
can make a jungle completely extinct
we have no idea of what we kill JUST for houses
Do me a favour STOP AND THINK
wonderful creatures that deserve to live too
Who made you think they were worth less than you…………

Soaps – who thinks our attitude stinks!
