Mother Nature
is slowly dying.

Her rainforest lungs
under constant attack,
as chain-smoking fossil fuels
leaves her wheezing for breath.

The cause of her sickness?
7 billion cancer cells,
multiplying exponentially,
consuming every last resource.

She thought they had a pact –
“You look after me,
and I’ll look after you.”

But they are killing her.
Can’t they see what they’re doing?
If she dies,
they die…


the human race will be just a distant memory,
and new custodians
will inherit the Earth…

May they treat her with greater respect,
than we do.
