In a Cloudless Thousand Years…

We must mourn the waste of the earth

as caretakers we have quit caring about

what we are leaving behind for future

generations.

It is our responsibility to care for what

Mother Nature has given us, she has

nourished us and allowed us to live off her

good graces.

Our treatment of Earth is sinful and

the selfish people numb me

who take from it and refuse to give

back by loving her as they do their own

gluttony. Give back as much as you

want to take away from her.

Are we demons that live in high

towers above the filth left upon the

land. Does that make us good

Bastards?

Take from the earth only what is

needed or evil will come and rob

you of your children’s future filled

with the beauty of Mother Nature

Is it too late, will we never catch up

from our pilferage and lack of

wisdom. The landscape continues to

change, will it become sinister and dank

transformed into a wasteland filled with

greed.

The stink may vanish, in a cloudless

thousand years, but can those of us

who cared about Earth today take comfort

in the fact that someone finally listened?
