mother nature wept
as her green growth shrunk
our forests wantonly harvested
our birds flee in sheer panic

dark clouds fill the sky
as indiscretions she does spy
wondering just why
we clog her arteries, she may die

she sent a pandemic
to our utter dismay
to keep us at bay
so she could rest

she needed a break
from our mindless
slaughter, then stirred
up even more unrest

for when we disrespect
our land and our people
consequences surely follow
we consume hate and waste

with far too much haste
lessen our carbon footprint
respect and love all people
let green stuff grow

so offspring might know
a healthier life
with far less strife
What are You doing about it?
