Mother Earth

Mother Earth

My human mother is my mother once removed,
my primary mother is mother earth.

She is the mother of my mother and of all beings,
plants or animals, big and small.

All Earth Mother's children are parts of her body,
hence needed and valued.

When we buy, cut and fence her we hinder normal
functions in Mothr's body and make her sick.

Furthermore, we dig her up with huge moldboard
ploughs, and pollute her with chemical fertilizers, and deadly poisons.

Quite visible symptoms indicate that she is sick
and getting sicker.

Mother's warning signals are loud and clear,
how much longer are we going to ignore them?

Time is running out.
