Hearth’s Ong

.

Look how they tear down our clouds, they steal our rivers,

They say we should be proud that we are such givers,

They eat our old forests and they burn out our sun,

Saying we cannot rest, that we have had our fun,

They drown out the oceans and scatter the deserts,

They consume the wild winds as main course and dessert,

They dry out the fountain and they empty the horn,

They melt down the mountains and they thaw of the thorn,

They claim the horizon and then reach far beyond,

They slow twist the reason and makeshift the respond,

They say that our great minds have found a solution

Then believe they make death in live threads, and needles,

They count away our breaths in innocent wheedles

As they brandish notions such as absolution,

They take away our land, they shackle our freedom,

But do not try to leave, but do not try to come,

They say they firmly stand for universal peace,

Oh watch them as they grieve, tearing it piece by piece,

They loan our deaths away, they trade the future now,

They make the whole world sway with all that they allow,

They see and take and break as children make a fuss,

Leaving ___ in their wake; but, see you not? They are Us.

I feel this still needs a bit of work to reach the impact I want to give it and for it to give to others, but I needed to get it out. I shall reflect on it later.
