A Disgrace

The heavens roll their eyes
At the behaviour of humankind
That we can endorse destruction
Of this world that we live in
Mass clearing of the foliage
That holds it all together
Pires of toxic grey smoke
Devouring breathable air
Fewer trees to regenerate
The element that lets us live
She cries floods of pain
Unhindered by tarred roads
And blocked up rivers
She twists in a frenzy
All the material possession
Man has gathered into his bricks
She has been growing angry of late
For we had all that we needed
And couldn’t take care of it
Instead we’ve plundered
And continue to destroy
Leaving little for the race
