Nature - Poem by Harold Lakeman

Remember the day the world rose up
The day we asked each other what we longed for
Men fought and shed blood
For something not worth fighting for

We can sit here in a world of debt
The companies burn our wallets
As we sit by and smile
Corporate snakes do too

Remember the green fields
Of which we all originate
The path of which we branched out from

We take our soul and throw it out the window
Living in a false future, we should focus on the past

And this is the human paradox
We will always desire more than we have
Even if we have more than we desire
