Raping Mother earth

Seeing how mother earth is raped every day

Polluting the air and water with no end

Scraping the oceans for the last bit of fish

 Saving the forests is a joke, they just pretend 

 

While COP 26 trying to make some rules

taking Air and Water for fools

Exposing that 1% of us, more or less

is producing 66% of the mess

 

Now, they want to go to Mars

with no air to breathe in site

We just need to stop the smoke

then we can see the stars at night

 

They want to go to Mars

with no clean water to drink

We just need to clear our streams

saving our dams and rivers from the stink

 

They want to go to Mars

building a new home, but no grass

Poetic that those who will stay

Would need to clean up the mess

when the wannabe Martians are away.

A brilliant poem which hits the mark. It's sad that the mega-rich seem to think there is a 'Planet B', at least for them.
