She weeps black tears that destroy
Every living thing they touch.
In her agony, she writhes
Rolling, restless, bewildered!
She has always nurtured them,
Yet they seek to destroy her.
And she is like a helpless child.
Defenceless, she cannot defy them
For they are obsessed with greed,
And will stop at nothing to ensure
Their cups overfloweth!
They have defiled her, raped her,
And beaten her consistently
With a growing intensity.
Yet for these atrocities,
There were no consequences!
But inevitably she will have her revenge,
For what will be left
After she has succumbed to their torture?
What will they have gained?
They cannot breathe the air;
Food supplies have disappeared;
And they thirst, but the water is poison;
The beautiful oceans that surround us,
Belong to every single creature
That inhabits our struggling planet!
What right do we have to destroy,
That which was never ours alone?
Our oceans are weeping, as they surrender
And the sound is deafening!
