Speak Softly For They Are Listening


Speak Softly For They Are Listening

The butterflies have fled.
Sparrows have flown away;
Never to return.
Living within the circle of smoke and fumes
That hovers above.
Arrogantly. Ravenously;
Fighting over pieces of the earth,
As if driven by the devil.
We beasts; The Humans,
Born from her;
Dependent on her,
Yet, we dishonour her creations.


Fully aware of our misdeeds;
We pillaged.
Like pirates possessed by the evil;
We pillaged.
Drilling into the heart of the oceans;
We pillaged.
Burning the forests to create concrete jungles;
We pillaged.
Each hill, each valley;
We pillaged.
Wars; ruins and rubble; depressing debris,
And ashes about everywhere. We pillaged.


When raping, killing, looting,
And pillaging is a punishable offence…
Why then is pillaging of nature justified…?
I speak softly for They, are listening.
The assassins will be cornered,
The nemesis defeated;
And the day of inevitable retribution will come.
