Nature´s Pillage - Poem by william dixon

As often as they plunder her,
We ask ourselves why it must be,
And seek the way to set her free.
But our toil becomes so blurry,
Seen through a prismatic flurry
Of `studies`, wherein all careens,
Furnishing us with a myrial scenes,
Few of which concur,

But rather us from truth dissuade,
So that we´re deceived again
By greedy forces bent on profit,
Corporate kings who nature flay,
In order to extend their reign
And further fill their pockets.

    An insightful depiction of devastating effects of man's activities on Nature - actions driven by greed and insatiable quest for dominance and material wellbeing, well articulated and nicely penned in poetic diction with conviction. (Report) Reply
