Worst of the Earth

08/01/06

In my time through my life
I have seen many things
Some with good, some with strife
Seen the joy that love brings

Watched the world turn and turn
Felt the warmth of the sun
Watched the world burn and burn
At the point of a gun

And now as we stand
At the edge of disaster
On a scale never planned
With the earth as our master

My mind turns to those
Whose lives will be spoiled
By the paths that we chose
And the world that we oiled

Oceans of filth
And beaches of wrath
Pursuing our wealth
Cutting our swath

The future is here
The worst fears we had
Are bettered I fear
Mothe Earth is so sad

What good is our wealth
A putrified stack
For a life with no health
With no way to go back

The worst of the worst
Is the world that we leave
To those never versed
In the pain we bequethed

Our children our heirs
As this kingdom of pain
Bound to be theirs
With its acified rains
