'Seeds Of Change'
I awoke one dark day n' found
The wealth of Earth was nearly gone
Stolen by greedy 'Robber Barons'
The sun that day held back the dawn
The skies above were dark and strange
Creatures' great ‘n small went mute n' still
Aware an unseen hand would sow seeds of change
Whilst evil men still gorged n' drank their fill
The Earth did groan and began to quake
Great rifts opened, water rushed everywhere
Lowlands filled and formed massive lakes
Self righteous men cried 'It's us God will spare'
Waters rose ‘til only mountain tops were showing
Those close enough made their way to higher ground
They knew not the flood would not stop flowing
‘Til everyone on Earth would finally drown
As long ago when ignorant men refused to live in balance
Mother Nature did rise again to meet their foolish challenge
