Rain Forests Cry Out
Rain forests cry out in searing pain
Listen- hush- their teardrops rain
Down in agony on thoughtless man
Whose allegiance lusts a fatal plan.
Self -centered in worship of his navel
Believes wrongly that the Earth enable
So few use so much- unholy contempt
Of Natural Law- from which non exempt.
Lord Of Lords, unquenched greed, you bastard seed
Planted in exhausted soil . You are in need
Of : purpose, values, and true tested honesty ,
Pillars used forever to uphold Life's Tapestry .
Hoe out noxious greed, build proper tilth
In soils of concern . There's a vast wealth
From loudly speaking out, so join with voices
Who shout, " I will not accept wrong choices !"
