What heart of stone dare lift an axe to strike,
And fell a tree thats young, green, and mighty?
And when the act is over, what dislike,
Shouldst fill the heart of Nature, Almighty?
Thrown in the ground, soaked from top to bottom.
Growing every day, taller and taller,
Bigger and wider.
Natures Majestic Trees still, mighty,
Clawed feet grips mother earth deep,
Together holding ground as their own,
Reaching tall breathing out for others life to keep,
The rainforest is slowing disintegrating,
Getting chopped down for our needs,
And whilst we are all debating,
We need to plant more seeds.
'O' not every virgin forest, is timid like a dove,
Assent's today to let me know, climbs below.
Crowned are you and made achieved a woman,
At some point, deforestation
The cool shade of patient
trees gradually becomes
deforestation laid bare ground heated
erosion created enlarged sand waste deserts
naked earth baked in global warming
Projecting black roots
On the land boundary
Are like ranging rods!
flash back to an age of coal steam
an age of native American genocide
an age of inheritance dispossession
