Rating: 5.0

God fashioned man out of earth
In His image and breathed life into him
Woman He created for him to love
Dominion over creation, He gave him

Greed begets even more deprivation Man's insatiable greed has no limitation This poem summed up all the wrongdoings man has inflicted upon Mother Earth in such an eloquent manner. Thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

The issues plaguing Mother Earth are very artificial and man-made and that is because of excessive greed of human beings........very well composed and inspiring

You've laid it on the line here Paul. Man's selfishness and greed is going to destroy this planet, we're rushing headlong into the abyss. I agree entirely with the sentiments of this poem. It's such a shame that wealth and power are now the idols that many worship. No thought for their own children and grandchildren. No thought for anyone or anything but themselves it seems.
