Our Mother is the Earth by Andres Diaz ©2017

The Earth is our mother

We must show her respect

This increase in climate change

Shows our neglect

This planet is the only one we have

If we are to survive on Earth

We must give climate change deniers

And polluters no berth

Pipelines and drilling do unnecessary damage

Wind, solar and geothermal are other choices

But they won’t help the oil exec’s

Get their custom Rolls Royce’s

We can’t reach the future

By only harvesting the past

These sources are not renewable

And they will never last.
