Industry has blood on its hands, From crimes committed against the land. No judge, no jury, no serving of time, No justice, no recompense for its crime.
Where is Mother Earth’s salvation? From perpetually battling, nation on nation. She has no voice, no representation, Alone and abandoned since the dawn of creation.
Mining for minerals releases the gasses, That go on to damage Earth and the masses. The burning of oil and fossil fuels, Creates energy for all of us ignorant fools.
Millions of forest hectares are annually destroyed, Deforestation leaving a bare and stark void. Earth’s atmosphere is left vulnerable and devoid, Of the protection our predecessors once enjoyed.
Transportation must stand its share of the blame, Trucks, ships, cars, trains and planes, Ferrying people and goods, it’s insane! Yet willingly we comply, feeling no shame.
Industry polluted the lakes, rivers and seas, Choked the very air our Mother Earth breathes, And when all is said, and all is done, It will pollute you, and I, and everyone.
Are we too late, to affect an undoing? To reverse decades of greed, rape, pillage, and ruin? Or is global disaster the fate we’ve been wooing, As we embark on the ultimate flight path to ruin?
We each have a role in this dramatic ballet, Take responsibility at the end of the day. But plant a tree? Oh, give me a break! We need to plant a forest! Replenish a lake!
The corporates have a huge part to play, with capitalists having a clear debt to repay. To reverse the harm, damage and disarray, And a need to change their frivolous ways.
We applaud the goal to be carbon neutral, But if you’re seriously environmental, Go one step beyond and show your metal, Stand-up, speak out, be precedential.
Prove to the world your credibility, By nurturing a culture of sustainability, For your profit, your people and the planet’s ability To prosper and thrive in atmospheric stability.
