Treasure Island

Gwenevere Cornwell

(March 24,1997)

You Kill the Earth

How the world turns
In still motion
Constant and unwavering
Perfectly conducted movements

Yet the beings
Chaotic and unorganised
Destroy without remorse

Unceasing is their cruelty
Uncaring are their hearts
Without guilt
Without err

They ruin my masterpiece
That took millennia to craft
In a single blink of my eye

How the tears stream down my cheeks
Steadily, for my pain
How can I be so large, yet
Unable to stop their evil

I find my only solace
In the love of those few
Trying to protect me

The Earth
The only known source of life
In your entire galaxy, yet
I am taken for granted

How cruel you can be!
Make me beg for mercy
As you torture me with your machines
Weapons of mass destruction

Why are you unable to feel remorse?
For killing me and everyone else with me
You're murdering everybody, and to what purpose?
To make one experience death

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
