The Big Green Ball
Big green ball
To kick around
It’s just a game
Too soon and gone
The wear and tear
Such a shame
Big Green Ball
While I was driving around the country I had plenty of time to think. What we are doing to the planet, the loss of so many species, the ravaging of our rainforests, the overpopulation – it all drives me mad.
In the course of my lifetime the world has changed enormously. Nature has been devastated. What I used to take as granted is being eroded every single day.
Living creatures are being wiped out and their interests ignored. If there is money to be made they come in a poor second.
Many people are so cruel. Recently I read of reports of attacks on orangutans. On three different occasions orangutans have been found dying or severely injured riddled with air-gun pellets. One had 140 pellets, including 70 in its head. One died after being riddled with 107 pellets, another had 137 pellets and lost its sight. Which crawl maggots would do such things to such intelligent gentle creatures?
What are we doing to the world? We are kicking the life out of it.
