GIVE LIFE A CHANCE
nature suffering, in my heart I suffer with her too
in your heart natures plight, you suffer
you might not know it but it is killing you.
killing you, me, all life suffering facing,
facing, but mentally blinded to mass extinction.
can you not see?
symbiotic relationships, do you know, do you?
how many lives live on you, in you, how many
forms of life keep you alive, you, me, us, who?
yes you too, all fauna needs bacteria in, and on
our bodies, for both to survive, to stay alive/
can you not feel?
flora, our symbiotic partner breathes for us,
and all fauna, yes all, inclusive, we are fauna.
breathing for flora, yet we kill it!
kill, slaughter it by fourteen million acres a year,
in one-year 56'655.99 km² of the UK denuded!
can you not empathize?
scaremongering? yes, for we all should be very scared!
our grandchildren's children very scared for them!
bar a minority the world population blind, blind to facts,
climate change, look out your window, see the truth,
the truth, nature suffering, help her, now, act!
can you not help? you can plant a tree give life a chance!
