Seeing Green
- Poetry, 2004/11/25 -

                I've just got one thing to say,
                I don't think it's at all okay;
                The harm we do to it every day
                Our environment we continue to slay,
                the price for which we will ultimately pay,
                of a magnitude that simply cannot be weighed.

                Why then is it so abused?
                Why then are finite resources misused?
                Why then has government falsely infused?
                Why then is the truth so easily subdued?

                Yet many people are happy to let things be,
                Is it because they cannot see;
                That procrastination is not the key?
                Yet many people don't do their share,
                Is it that they just don't care?
                Do they expect these issues to vanish into thin air? 

                Why then is it so abused?
                Why then are finite resources misused?
                Why then has government falsely infused?
                Why then is the truth so easily subdued?

                Religious folk are so devout,
                always following the righteous route.
                And surely if I'm not mistaken,
                Earth is one of God's creations,
                So why don't they among the nations,
                make protecting it a primary vocation?

                Why then is it so abused?
                Why then are finite resources misused?
                Why then has government falsely infused?
                Why then is the truth so easily subdued?
