Manicured and tamed.
Massacred and maimed.
Tied up and chained,
Castrated and drained.
Nature in this century
Always on the run.
Treated like the enemy
And tortured for fun.
People in this modern world
Losing their connection.
Senseless and callous
Bereft of all direction.
The planet used to be an interconnecting web of different habitats, each different and rich in number and variety. It was a web that we were part of.
That web is now broken up by fields, roads and towns. It no longer connects.
We are no longer part of it.
Nature has become something to be conquered and tamed.
The wildlife is driven back, the swamps drained, the forests cleared and the seas dredged.
The creatures are driven out. Those we find, the remnants, are poisoned, butchered or tormented for fun.
We know longer have purpose. We think we are above everything.
I fear there will be a terrible reckoning
