The poem(s) are below...



I have long said mother nature is against us
we are no more than a nasty virus to her.
She has sent us many warnings over the years
which mainly fell on deaf ears due to human greed

The response has been in our hands for a long time
but blithely we carried on with our terrible pollution.
We laughed in her face giving her the finger and 
dominating the innocent fauna and flora around us.

So should we really be surprised when she fights back
how many people does she have to kill  worldwide
before we wake up and rein ourselves in? 
Have we yet learned the lesson she is teaching us?

I fear the answer is still a resounding No
Perhaps when she wipes out 50% of the human race
we may sit up and begin to realize she holds all the cards
That we only live at her will. She has the power to wipe us out.

Hi Shadow: I love this theme and your poem is an excellent wake up call. I wrote my poem ‘The Eyes of Mother Nature’ as a similar warning. Hugs, SuZ

Mother Nature might be trying to right herself. We have been greedy and thoughtless toward her. This poem makes enormous sense.
