Mother Earth takes care of us;
So, why do we cover her up in dust?
Keeping the Sun away,
She ensures we survive another day.
Forest fires being normalized;
Our ecosystems are failing,
Yet, we continue to do nothing.
People scurrying around to make cash
Not caring about what goes in their trash.
Everyone blathering about dying in 50 years,
But Mother Earth is the one shedding tears.
Are we truly forward-thinking,
Or is that simply the sound of us sinking?
Actions speak louder than words;
So, why are we not saving our hummingbirds?
