Scarred Tentacles

On the tentacle of nature
We burn and pollute her home
Tangle her in plastic and toxins
Multiple arms of reaching
The octopus we drench
An essay length charge sheet
Of our transgressions against her
And she is not the only one
Leaving sunken footprints
Likes of a Sasquatch, Yeti
Abominable snowmen
We of the human form
Stomping on the face of Earth
Scratching her beautiful surface
Gaping scars the trail we blaze
