Our treasured earth is life, the sacred ground
Of our existence. It supports the seeds
That feed the world. But digging holes, we’ve found
Destruction in the service of our greed.
Air, what sets our world apart in the grand
Design makes habitable the one home
In the universe. But by our crass hand
This critical resource may soon be done.
The water sustains life of every kind
On this planet. Without it, clean and clear,
Civilizations die, cultures fail to find
Sustenance the toxic wells. We oft hear
The doubt, denial, and neglect, but those
Who do harm to this place are who we chose.
