Mother of Peril

Destruction of rain forests
Melting ice caps
Species going extinct
Monster storms
Ozone depletion
Extreme temperatures
Fresh water shortages
Crop failures
Ancient volcanoes erupting
Pods of whales beaching themselves
Receding glaciers
Multiple hurricanes
Killer tornadoes
One cannot negotiate with Mother Earth
She will correct herself
It appears we have not been good stewards
Global warming is a hot topic
But, can you prove it says the critics?
All the ICBM’s, Trident nuclear subs,
Drones, SEALS, arms, and marines,
Are useless in this crusade…
Options are running low
Change your ways or die
For a mother in peril
Will do what ever to protect her children
We need new thinkers, time
To overthrow the dinosaurs, and
Rebuild, replenish, re-nourish,
Our mother earth…
