Earthly Treason

Too much is to be expected from the world in which we grow

Always have to make a use for everything we know

We cannot leave things be, nor care

For what we rip out the earth just isn’t fair

We take more than our share

Whilst other wisps of creatures, dine on meager scraps

Humans are racing fervently to get rid of this and that

If a creature seems more successful, just kill it, don’t let it go

For we don’t have our fair share, this is wrong you know?

Humans are destructive, the evidence is clear

Why do we rip apart the things that we hold dear?

This earth is dying, humanity’s the reason

Why do we carry on this earthly treason?
