A very very rough draft.
The Rape of Earth
I am alone. I am content. I am free.
Here they come. Slowly, slowly.
Here to stay with me.
I like the way they feel.
They treat me with respect.
To them my treasures I’ll reveal.
Days go by and still they’re here.
Sometimes they make me feel pain,
But somehow I never have fear.
Foolish, sweet, and sometimes rude
I just can’t help but love them so
I am happy to make them food
It’s been weeks and there’s a change
They hurt me more and more
This behavior is so strange
My tears are flowing, now all is wetter
I cry until there’s only one
That promises all will be better.
I cannot help but to hope it’s true
So slowly one becomes many
Just like that my love’s born anew
Quickly they begin their abuse
I do my best to keep them happy
But they don’t care if I bruise
They treat me like trash,
Use me for their needs
And burn me with their ash
Now they’ve waxed me clean
They only want control, and
To brand me with their gene
It’s too late to stop it all
I’ll never escape this bondage
I wish that humankind would fall.
