What have we done to our beautiful world?
Filled every empty space with trash
The ocean is empty of course — who cares
For dolphins and fish, eels and worms?
The desert mountains are empty of course —
Only goats, snakes and coyotes live there.
The air is empty of course — birds only fly there —
Just our breath and blanket.
Carve away hills, toss poisons in forests,
We don’t live there. We live elsewhere. Do we?
