The defiling general

The earth has been drowned by the fiend 
Deprived from its undergrowth 
Stripped from the edible seed 
Killed to the last in loath 
By the toll of the sully

Millions have tasted the loganberry 
But neither can you nor I 
Neither go around the mulberry 
Nor savoured what it bore 
By the toll of the sully 

The derrick has ruined us all
And the motors breathed venomous gas
The colour of life drained out of sight 
The tone of silence now perished for the mortal
By the toll of the sully 

The languish fossil, now a bailiff
The wrapper now an agitate
The weaklings now warlords
Littering around bunkum bombs
By the toll of the sully 

The beings to consult for this 
Our chart of lineage 
Who sprawled obsessed with greed
Keeping the globe busy at risk 
By the toll of the sully
