Natures Lament
 
A year or two - a thousand passed
Yet nature stayed the same
Her majesty it covered all
Her glory uplifted man
I saw the ancient ruins stand
Now covered green with time
The stones were broken scattered round
For nature claimed them back
Beneath the ground our history lay
For battles there were fought
The cries of war still echo there
Transcending all of time
Nature woke she stretched and wept
Tsunamis roared the tempests blew
Earthquakes shook the lands
Tornadoes sucked cities up
Hurricanes struck our shores
Hot the winds that blew the dust
Environment explodes
Man had altered - man had killed
Destruction in his wake
What remains - a world of change
The powers do shake
The earth doth quake
For man exalts his name
The elements do vie it seems the universe unroll
The mighty sea to desert turns
Chaos now doth reign
The gods do mourn - laments I hear
Darkness doth abound
 
Man hath destroyed the earth!
