Dear mankind, long before your birth
Such was the beauty of our Mother Earth
When dense leaves bore succulent fruit
When fauna was melodious, bright, astute.
When rippling water streamed and poured.
The zestful world left unexplored
The air mixed with purity and hope
Ecstasy and colour at every scope.
But then along you came, oh mankind
The grace that we once could find
Vanished, because of your sly ploy
The exquisiteness you did destroy
Due to deforestation, poaching and smoke
The delicate symmetry you had broke
All life having reached fatality, death
For this grace to be gutted you set/
The dim future that we foretold
Is now our present, so we must be bold
And heal our mother, rather than kill
We’ll find the way if we find the will.
