Mother Lover of books I write to vent, rather than professionally.

Empires, Peace, and Mother Nature

The most horrific war And act of suppression That we have seen On any nation Involves destruction Of Mother Nature Through mass production We all forsake her Through trade induction We forgot to nurture Instead consumption Became fixed behaviour She will have redemption For her disfavour Trees will burst through every building Growing quicker Than what we’ve seen She’ll cleanse her oceans Of oils and toxins She’ll rid the planet Of it’s disease We’ll destroy ourselves Through merciless greed The end of humanity Is guaranteed The earth will return to peace When our souls are far away After we all decease For our welcome, we overstayed Gluttony of Empires has pained, The fruit of our mothers labour And no mother would abstain From behaving as their child’s saviour For we as humans could not attain The lesson in ‘love thy neighbour’ For we succumb instead to feign Nations ruined at the hands of empire.
