The barren landscape before us so pure and untarnished
Endless miles of grass blowing in the wind
As the distant crews of trucks approach slowly
To rape and pillage the beauty we see.
The ocean barren and beautiful as the water laps the shore
Birds are flying above the jetties looking for food.
As the distant builders carrying their wood
Erect the monstrosity of decadent homes
The forest so peaceful and quiet only natures sound
The chirping of crickets and flutter of birds
As the distant loggers gather their tools
Using nature’s beauty to further the selfish goals of mankind
God created and granted us the earth to live and dwell
To take what we need and preserve what we don’t
To treasure the beauties of animals and nature
To appreciate the gifts that he bestowed upon us.
Man has destroyed the landscape so pure and untarnished
With unnecessary mini mall and mini marts
Plaguing every corner, every empty space
With the selfishness in the name of “conveniences”
Man has built up and polluted the ocean shore
With the garbage and refuse of unuseful debris
Of mansions that sprawl against the horizon
For those huge families of three or four
Man has taken over the forest so peaceful and quiet
To make room for the houses to get away from it all
With the others soon to follow them in suit
Which ends in futility for the crowds keep coming
Where will man decide to end this?
When will man decide to act responsible?
Why do we have the need to pillage and destroy?
And lastly what will it take for man to ultimately learn?
