Author's Notes: This poem, "Mother Nature Cries," is a thought-provoking piece that I've had in the back of my mind for a while. I originally wrote this poem on February 12, 2015. It constitutes my indictment of and two-cent's worth on the ongoing "Climate Change" problem facing all of us here on Earth. Although its message is shrill, the poem is meant to get the message across that climate change is real and that mankind has played a demonstrable role in its genesis and maturation over many years. Man is faced with a dilemma of his own making. How we approach this problem and what we collectively undertake as the human race in bringing about positive change may turn this current negative tide in our favor. Regardless, doing nothing is an option that I don't think is advisable, and may have unintended consequences if the market forces in big business have their way. Let's pray that this will not be the result!! (Gary Bateman - May 3, 2015) (Rhymed Couplet)
