We’re part of it.
There’s a small planet that we’re on
That provides everything we need;
An intricate interconnecting web
Of insect, fur and seed.
Some recognise that this delicate web
Took billions of years to evolve
And that we’re messing up a balance,
Creating problems we can’t solve.
It’s like cannibalising the life-support
That is keeping us alive
Instead of improving it –
Enabling us to thrive.
Too many people see nature
As a business, open to abuse.
You either feel you’re part of it
Or it’s there for you to use.
