EARTH, THE EARTH, THE POOR OLD EARTH!
Earth, the Earth, the poor old Earth!
Did it deserve such people on it?
billion years and more have gone, it's
Shameful, just how long it took
make the planet fit for living,
systems, so that within
a paradise took shape -
rare achievement, if you look
At other worlds, some cooked, some cold -
all you humans do is mould
place round your desires,
feed the greed that never tires
gobbling the earth's resources,
the revenge of forces
beyond the tight control
think you have, but on the whole
haven't, as you're finding out
From floods and winds and killer droughts.
only been around a tick of time,
But look - the mayhem you've created -
cause to be annihilated?
such hard work
when it leads to human beings,
wonders - was it worth it, seeing
these erect and top range apes
just the chaps to wreck the place!
