And the Earth Sighed...

And The Earth Sighed....

 

You're breeding too fast

I can't sustain you

Try as I might

Don't know what to do

 

You plunder my being

Much more than you need

Show some restraint

Just stop all your greed

 

and the earth sighed...

 

You're abusing my being

Turn after turn

Always polluting

When will you learn?

 

I'm trying to provide

A place for you all

To enjoy life with me

But you keep building walls

 

and the earth sighed...

 

We can't live in isolation

You're feeling my wrath

We must work together

To survive, you, me, both

 

When will you wake up?

Stop angering me

Help fix up our problems

And live happily?

I admit this one surprised me. Just appeared out of 'nowhere' from inside...

"You plunder my being
much more than you need
show some restraint

This should be shouted from the mountain tops.

If we lived within our needs and limited our luxuries we would be all the better for it.
We would probably enjoy our luxuries all the more too.
