What stuff are we made of

What stuff are we made of We have eaten up greens, Inhaled the best and given the worst, The waste everywhere, In the air, in water and heaps on land, In name of modernisation, Intruded woods and raw earth, Colossal buildings, Material waste, In name of science and research, Synthetics and non bios, Displacing all life, useless piles will eat space, and for future generations, do we leave a deface ? Is any other being on this Mother Earth, Exploiting resources the way we do ? Insensitive, what stuff are we made of ? And generating the unending waste, civilised are we ? Written June 18th, 2015 For contest "Stuff" by Thomas Martin Second place win

Mankind has become used to take without moderation; to use egoistically; not bothering to give or replace. It is a worrying problem. (pls see my poem Earth Cries). Congratulations on this win, Upma, and for the awareness you raise. // paul

The questions in the final stanza are very hard hitting - sadly the human race is responsible for the destruction of the earth - love your take on the theme good luck in the contest:-) hugs jan xx
