What Have We Done?


There were times when the water was transparent
There were times when kids played around trees
Times when animals weren't scared of us
Our oceans were full of life and not full of venom

But now the water is dirty and full of shit
Trees and forests are hard to find on the planet
Animals know what we have done to them
The oceans bleeds without stopping

What have we done to the planet?
What will it be of you and I?

I've heard stories of how there were times when
We could see the stars anywhere on the planet
There were times when global warming was not a problem

Now those times don't exist
Our pollution has gone too far
There places where we can't see the stars
There haven't been warmer periods during our history

What have we done?
Why are people so ignorant?
What will it be of you and I?

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
