A Cosmic Shrug
As our green Earth
Delights in life’s birth
Basking in perpetual sun
With warmth and light for everyone
Might finally become aware
Of the parasite lurking there
And with a shrug of lava and ash
Rids itself of this foul rash.
If only the planet was alive and conscious of the life that it had given birth to.
If only it became aware of the mess that we humans are making of the world and decided to take action.
