The Good Earth?

The Good Earth?

The good earth ... old and steady;
green and everlasting ... till yesterday!
We live a myth ...
toxic air and stagnant water is today,
polluting and destroying as corporate greed
feels the need, swinging the scythe,
screwing the public with all its might.
Forget about tomorrow’s child ...
let’em drink tainted water
and breathe foul air ... who cares?
Barren wastelands ... drought and famine.
Sounds oddly familiar ... it’ll only get worse.
Children will die from simple thirst.
You think the earth is clean and evergreen...
it’s just a dream.
Born deformed your grandchildren’s child will be.
So stand your ground and make the plea ...
“I want my great-grandkids to see a tree.”
While the thorns of life persist,
the rose will wither and decay.
