SHE CRIES

                    i

She cries of the many unnatural cunts

That your drills and diggers have created

In your selfish quest for the black gold.

                    ii

Our Mother cries,

For in our quest for shelters,

Her greendoms we plundered,

And her green sanctuaries we shaved clean.

                    iii

Our Mother bleeds,

Her flora oozes evidence of our greed.

For the black liquid intoxicates her breeds.

                    iv

She cries with the load of 

Bullets and guns upon her,

Though, no external signs of agony,

Her heart is bleeding.

                    v

We try to keep up with 

Those uncountable desires 

All racing to be first 

But only she is suffering 

                    vi

Reprimanding from every happiness,

She’s her own grave.

A selfless love for everyone,

Receives nothing but hatred.

    Although we may think the overexploitation of the mother Earth will continue for life, I am sorry it won’t. We may think we have every tools to manipulate it but I tell you, nature will bounce back on us. Am I joking? It is already bouncing back in global warming, unpredictable weather, flooding, drought, and so on.
    In order to slow down this menace as it seams inevitable due to the atrocities caused over the last century and as they continue this days, we must redirected our course and embrace sustainable production and consumption.
    We must leave a good heritage for the coming generation for posterity shake.
