We Do Not Own Nature


Of Nature's ways we will never be aware
If the World with her creatures we do not wish to share
We dispossess the birds and animals when we cut their trees down
To make more room for development on the outskirts of town
Despite the discovery of cloning and the advanced science of today
Extinction is forever and will remain that way
Human tampering with Nature is not a good thing
And the praises of such I for one cannot sing
Genetic modification of crops and the cloning of life forms should never take place
Human tampering with Nature is humanity's disgrace
Though many with what I say may well disagree
Leave Nature to Nature that's how it should be
We do not own Nature to her we belong
And if you feel differently you've got it wrong.
