Mother Earth

 

our world; our responsibility; everyone impacts

Earth loves and nurtures

provides all we need.

we take and take

and never put back.

rip Her open and

tear out Her resources.

move mountains

fill in wetlands

cut down trees

make plastic to sit

forever in man-made landfills.

a disposable society

of luxury and convenience.

we’re throwing away

our Mother Earth.
