Laid to waste

The land rots

laid to waste the precious land

green gardens turning to desert sand

a bag of plastic choke the roots

a bottle and can  rush the shoots

factory chemical kills the seed

this by the hand of human deed

trees to fell for human need

the land raped by human greed

engineered by science the crops do stand

sucking the blood of god given land

what we waste not gone in air

a plastic bag to nature unfair

oh will our children not see the grass green

or they not find fishes in the stream

maybe they breathe air with a price tab
or they eat food made in a lab

time for every one to act

a plastic bag never rots a fact

efforts of few just tears on sand

let us try to save the rotting land

  2. A powerful poem, which touches a cord within my heart as mankind has reeked havoc upon our Earth as we pollute and poison her lands and waterways…
    I cry along with our Earth Mother at our constant destruction of our environment…

  5. Decades ago I was traveling in Arizona far from anything or anybody and saw a pile of trash and I choked! I knew then humankind messed up badly. Yours is a clear statement of just how messed up we are! There is much improvement to make!!!!!!

    It is sad that mother earth is treated so badly…
    I have no idea what will happen in the future
    but if the seasons of today have any bearing
    on it, then it will surely have a negative impact
    as the years of neglect continue…

    The world is one big tip, and getting worse…
