Everytime you destroy a forest with axe and knife
You destroy endangered species, precious wildlife
When you want only cut a beautiful tree
Animals loose their habitat, in terror flee.
Four walls, no windows, no exit
One light bulb, one cot, a table, a bottle
What else is there in life to contemplate on?
Day after day, month after month, year after year?
The wedding bells of long ago have ceased
The petals of the roses once so sweet
Have fallen one by one, still they live
On and forever through time and space.
