Man's Abuse

Into the woods of beast and bird
The marching intrusion of humans
Covering wildflowers with concrete

The forest wails as trees fall
Nature’s beauty pillaged
In grinding tracks of a bulldozer

Habitat shrinking deer feast on plants
Adorning manicured gardens
While man complains

The music of the meadowlark silenced
The meadow now gone
Erased in urban sprawl

Air becoming harder to breathe
Smog hangs over the cities
Lungs begging for clean air

Seas polluted by man’s hunger for petroleum
Black oil suffocates life in the water
As it makes a devastating flow toward land

Abuse heaped upon the planet
By those deemed its caretakers
May leave all living things without a home
