Mother Earth is Crying.

How blind can we be

how many years will we

spend ignoring the

death of humanity?

another ancestry race abolished

one more rainforest demolished

countless gallons of oil

spilled into the deep black sea

how many more times will

the media fill ours heads with grime?

conspiracy theories ignored

covering up industrial crime

a shield that holds

the monsters at bay

is full of bullet holes

fabrications falling away

injudicious behaviour to ask for proof

meaningless distracting

to avoid the truth

ingenuous ability to disguise

the uncontrollable lust

sexual performances

of those in power

the ones we are meant to trust

puppets on a sting

singing mindlessly to their tune

children are left starving

whilst public school boys

race to the moon

the poorest

their hope is

to plant a seed

watch it grow

into food to feed

the hungry mouths of their young

until their master comes along

to steal away their sweat

blood and tears

while he fills their hopefulness

full of doubting fears

counting his money

to suckle his greed

not a thoughtful moment

for the land that he will bleed

till the river run dry

the soil turns to dust

till there is no longer

the flight of the seagull

to colour the sky

I hear mother earth

as she weeps every morn

for the countless babies

that will be born

created for the slaughter

yes, raised for the kill

a humiliating life

grown up in pig’s swill

but we do that to each other

force our fellow man

to live a hellish existence

whilst we hide in glass houses

ensuring they do not cross

the electrified fence

Mother Earth is weeping

how much longer can

we live in denial

Mother Earth is crying

well, that ought to

wipe the smile

off the face of consumerism

Mother Earth is dying

I think it is time to listen.

  1. It is definitely time to listen! Reminds me of a scripture I use to restore my hope: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land”.
