Signs of the times


there will come a time
where we will long to see the sunshine
hurling winds
mounted sins
where should i begin
like the tragedy
done to the sea by BP
We pollute the air
and people do not care
water used to be free
but i can clearly see
the horrors of the sea
are because of money and greed
a harder life for you and me
why cant they see
you cannot just keep taking from mother earth
from which gave us birth
for her it hurts
to see what we have done
who we have become
when is it going to stop
she will take back whats her's
if we do not take care of her.
