'' We Have Stripped The Planet Earth Bare ''''

The moon in the ocean,
Gave a beautiful motion,
I'd say it was almost perfection,
Then out of the blue I had a notion,
From Humans they both need protection.

The beauty of the seas,
Were made to appease,
For everything alive to enjoy,
We come along and do what we please,
Our aim seems to be to destroy.

The wonder of plants,
The microbes and ants,
They're truly a joy to behold,
When warned they're dying we said stop the rants,
Our attitude has left this world cold.

The planet now warms,
Creating more storms,
We are literally falling apart,
We know what's required but ignore the reforms,
The Human Race Has Ripped Out It's heart.

To our planets life,
We've caused nothing but strife,
Everything alive is now dead,
We've cut through resources like a red hot knife,
Not only dangerous but sick in the head.

Now everything's gone,
We feel put upon,
But still we do not accept blame,
We still believe we're the ones with the brawn,
We don't know the meaning of shame.

Take life as a prequel,
Where everything was equal,
Extinctions were extremely rare,
After our time here there'll be no sequel,
Why,
