Wildcat

Wildcat

Stems of tubing
Stacked by threes,
Will bring our Mother
To her knees.

The wildcat tries
To feed her young.
Her search for energy
Never done.

In forests green
And oceans deep,
The wildcat rig
Will never sleep.

We thirst,
We hunger,
For what she looks for
Deep down under.

Boxes speed
On rubber round.
To Earth’s crude blood
Mankind is bound.

Stems of tubing
Stacked by threes,
Will bring our Mother
To her knees.
