Myth of Mother Earth

Is there really a mother of earth 
watching over us 
keeping things in line
I think there used to be 
but she got tired of getting spit on 
now she sits up on her cloud
high above and waits 
for us to tear each other apart
and seal our evil fates
she wonders why we disgrace her lands
like monkeys in a rage
she thinks we ought to be locked up
no need for lock and key trapped inside
to burn forever at an intolerable degree
never the less we shall live on 
reeking havoc upon this earth
she'll stay perched upon her cloud 
until the crushing blows we throw 
send her beloved planet into a rebirth

    Wow, Virginia, I think you hit hard on the truth here. If I were mother Earth, I'd be waiting for mankind to self destruct too. This is truly creative and genuinely compelling. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn
