Why do they kill our planet

Why do they kill our planet?

Sometimes I sit and wonder
About the foolishness
Of the rich, and those fool politicians
I could not like them less
These imbeciles who have two thoughts
Just wealth, and untold power
They destroy this wondrous Earth of ours
Will their souls ever flower?

They’ve killed our forests mile by mile
They’ve filled our seas with crap
They’ve filled our air with so much poison
As our planet waits to snap
And now they kill our barrier reef
A little at a time
To me it’s utter foolishness
What they do is such a crime.

It irks me that we citizens
Have to watch the damage done
Should not we kick these crazies out?
For brains they have not one
Or why would they kill our planet
And just for riches too
I’m sick of them, so sick of them
I don’t mind telling you.

    Thank you so much ML. I wrote my first greeny poem over forty years ago, and they are dear to my heart. I love this planet that I live on, but I hate these greedy people who destroy it. I appreciate your kind comments, my friend.....Peter

    I hope you have put this in the contest for annoying things!! Well, of course this goes far beyond a mere annoyance, it reeks with evil! Good write, my friend.

    You would have thought that Australia has been in a good position to consider a whole lot of alternatives than further digging, drilling. Its had money while many other countries had to reorganise their finances, and what has it done with it? Nothing? Back to the same old answers, by drill bit and sweat. Such a shame.

    You are so right Scott. These fools fail to realize, when they destroy the planet, they are slowly destroying themselves. Whatever happened to wisdom? I appreciate your comments, my friend....Peter

    It is indeed Shadow, now they are about to destroy our beautiful Barrier reef, which makes me hate politicians even more than I did before. I appreciate your comments, my friend....Peter

    I would do whatever possible to save our planet! We have gone very green here at our house and that contributes to the saving of our planet at least a little! I agree 100% though that the politicians are power hungry and really don't give a flying flip about the Earth or any other human being except themselves! I know there is a lot that needs to be done to save our planet from all of these problems! I just hope we can do them in time before it's too late(which we are close!) Great Work!!

    true indeed...as the saying goes.. " people governing people for their own sake/goodness.."..too bad..we can't expect any good thing in return from those fool politicians... but never lose hope..there is a right time in every thing..and with His power to control this world, nothing is impossible! ..thanks! :)

    Aiyah, our government are going to destroy some more of our lovely Barrier reef. Most politicians are fools, as far as I am concerned and do not give a damn about beauty. Don't matter who one votes for. Men of wisdom never rule countries. I appreciate your comments, my friend....peter
