Our Earth Mother Every Life - Poem by Francis Duggan

She is and was and always will be the World's number one super power
The one who can create a beautiful flower
The food that we live on for us she does grow
Yet so little about her we can claim to know
The one who provides for us for as long as we live
We take and take from her and in return to her little give
For her riches we dig up her ground for to satiate our greed
She would be better off without us though her we do need
Her achievements far greater than that of any woman or man
The mother of all life forms since life on Earth began
For their survival every life form on her does depend
Yet we do not treat her as our greatest friend
Our Earth Mother every life she does eventually receive
The only World super power i for one do believe.
