From Dirt To Muddy Up When It Rains - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

I would not be the one to suggest,
That the Earth is a living and breathing entity.
Superior in thought than mankind will ever be.
No.
This 'thing' is just a ball in space.

I would not be the one to suggest,
That from the Earth...
All that has come to witness life,
From Earth had its birth.
From ashes to ashes.
Dust to dust.
From dirt to muddy up when it rains?
No way.

I would not be the one to suggest,
Any of this.
Even hypothetically.

Since everyone knows...
We came here bestowed upon this,
Our existence...
By way of immaculate conception.

Divine!
With a purity and wholesomeness,
As commemorated on December 8th.

    men have not been, oh, no, all creatures, the whole creation has not been created without any purposes, it has a definite purpose, the earth is one of them among many, the earth is not above human, human being is above every thing,
    and men has the duty to perform as the designer desired to do
