Welcome to this World little one, though you won't understand.
by Mary Lewis
The ravages that have been done -- all in the name of Man!
The Rivers are polluted -- this land of ours is torn.
The Animals are being killed, the Forests have been shorn.
But Mom and Dad will see to it that all your dreams come true.
They'll have to work doubly hard -- to make it if they do.
Welcome to our Universe! And as you grow to youth --
Maybe things will turn around, and Man will learn the truth.
As how to make this World of ours a better place to live.
And not to let their greed take more than what they have to give.
God willing, you will see it through -- and when you take your stand --
You'll be proud to say that you were born in such a gracious land!
