Mother Mourns

She had freely shared her bounty

And her grand rich majesty

Her mountains and her forests

Lakes, rivers and deepest seas

Entrusting to all humankind

The creatures she held dear

Believing they’d be tended well

And her gifts would be revered

Cement and dark pollution

In mans zest for ever more

Laid waste to countless treasures

Silencing the lions roar

She mourned at how her loved ones

Had been harmed unmercifully

And for having placed her faith in those

With no integrity ….
