Our Planet

We think we own this planet

when in fact we are only its guests

and with our mindless behaviour

we are putting its patience to the test.

We treat it as our given right

when really were are at

the mercy of its formidable might.

We think we can do what we please

without worrying about the consequences

but we are in for a rude awakening

if we do not come to our senses.

Our children will be left

to breathe in our mistakes,

to drink and bathe in toxic lakes

Temperatures shall rise

and acid rain will fall

thanks to our uninhibited

use of aerosols.

Will renewable energy

arrive too late

to curb the greed

of the oil rich states.

We forget about our own planet

while exploring space,

leaving to the few truth Sayers

to worry about the human race.

Time is against us

but the politicians do not care,

except some with a conscience

but the exception is rare.
