Where Human Greed Is Prevalent - Poem by Francis Duggan

Of the power of their money wealthy people may boast
But where human greed is prevalent Nature does suffer most
For the wealth she possesses people dig in our Mother Earth's ground
Most natural environmental damage occurs where human greed does abound

Of the greatness of oil tycoons and mining magnates we hear of and read about
But of their sort of people Mother Earth would be better off without
Where people have been mining and digging Nature's resources laid bare
So much environmental damage to create one billionaire

Though with my way of thinking most do disagree
Our human priorities seem all wrong to me
The Earth Mother we live off of we abuse every day
That we take and take from her does seem sad to say

And in return to her little give it does seem this way
For our environmental crimes the future generations will pay
To the new billionaire his or her wealthy friends do drink a toast
But where human greed is prevalent Nature does suffer most.
