Protect Our Waters - Poem by Elizabeth Padillo Olesen

Protect our Waters

Let us pollute our lakes, rivers, oceans and seas
As graves of our own garbage
Let us suffocate our lungs and health
By all these - we have invested.

Let us be driven by the lusts of our own senses
to emit to the atmosphere
heat and carbon rays as we please.

Let us exploit the earth
as our own slave and look at ourselves
as masters, the absolute.

Let us wake up to find one day
that the earth enslaved
will seek to free itself
even if it would cost the masters to bleed.
