A Call to Our Duty to
So they say
that a happier day will come,
when everyone has their computer, VCR, TV and microwave
They also say that it's OK
to pollute the rivers, the land and the air,
none of which is ours, but merely a most beautiful loan
with no option to buy. What other creature would so foolishly
prepare such an awful and toxic harvest!
They say, "As long as we have such convenience
why should we care about prudence?"
but, when do they measure the consequence?
People of the earth say nay! By such goals are people misled
to such gross misuse of such beautiful and unique gifts
as we've all been given in the earth and in each other!
Either we respect everything,
or we can respect nothing at all, as all things are related
and the fate of the All is One.
If we disrespect the ground we walk on
we are hurting our Mother.
It's like pouring salt on our own wounds,
and hurting others as a result.
So please take care and care take.
