Mother Earth's Plea

I am Earth, your "significant other
and your ailing, endangered mother
I'm treated much like a garbage can
by the great consumer; modern man
Human birth rates are out of control
Mother Earth cries, "I’m paying the toll
I can’t support all the lives you bring
You humans are a perplexing thing
To illustrate my point, observe a tree
who shares free oxygen and energy
Peaceably growing up to the light
Yet, it’s a target practice in some men’s sight
You breed cattle which erodes my topsoil
You KILL for my depleted stores of oil
You destroy my skies, and pollute with noise
Planet Earth calms and gathers her poise
My inhabitants; women and men —
Rejoice in me, every now and then
Gain a feeling of natural health
by exploring nature’s bountiful wealth
From breathtaking glacier lakes, pristine
to the most long-living trees ever seen
Climb my mountains to follow the light
Watch for moonbows adorning the night
Inhale my fragrant fields of wildflowers
Cherish my sweet smelling rain showers
that fill the rivers and streams that flow
nourishing all life that yearns to grow
Walk my valleys and swim in my ponds
See my trees as giant magic wands
that neighborly point the direction
of the sun’s glorious perfection
I sustain your life and the lives of all other
So, I’m forced to be a threatening mother
I urge a new environmental zest
Or I’ll rid myself of the human pest
Listen to me children, hear my call
and heed my warnings once and for all
Appreciate me, your Mother Earth---
Protect and preserve my priceless worth
