Green

We think we own this planet

when we are only its guests.

Long after we are gone

it will still be here

facing up to its next test.

We treat it as our given right

when we are in fact at

the mercy of its formidable might.

We think we can do

what we please without

any consequences,

but we are in for

a rude awakening

if we don’t come to our senses.

Our children will be left

to breathe in our mistakes,

to drink water and

bathe from toxic lakes.

Temperature’s will rise

and acid rain will fall

thanks to our uninhibited

use of aerosols.

Has renewable energy

arrived too late

to help curb the greed

of the oil rich states.

We forget about our home planet

while exploring space

leaving a few truth Sayers

to worry about the human race.

Time is against us,

but the elite do not care,

except some with a conscience,

but that exception is rare.
