have the birds not lost their tone
have the rivers lost their gleam
as population has steadily grown
as the factories are increasing steam
now tainted with oil was once fresh water
killing the fish her most precious daughter
each blow to the trunk until just a stump
each piece of trash in water and sunk
it is a sin to forget ones mother
over expansion please stop the plunder
stand and feel the soft wind through tall green trees
notice each blade of grass beneath bare knees
so easy to loose sight of nature's great beauty
forget not to protect her for that is our duty
