Future Needs Help
Where is that blanket that shields the sky?
Has it been washed and left to dry?
I see the wide chimneys smoking high
Poking the blanket till it tears
At the billow of the dark exhausts
The birds scampers in trepidity
The air elopes leaving not enough
The trees wither, heads hanging in timidity
The wilds are diminishing
Versions left; extinct.. still extinguishing
The world wasn't given us to kill
Can we protect her after her ancestry?
Where are the humans that would love
Love our planet enough
To keep nature not to fall
Fall from what our hands have done
The birds plead
The fishes weep
The world begs
Future needs help
