Poetry – We’re part of it.

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.

I guess,

You either feel you’re part of it

Or it’s there for you to use.
