And Yet You Love Us Still

You are old now and you are tired Your body raped and parts of you burned and fired.Yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.

You were young once golden and new greener than green, seas and rivers running blue.Young then younger than time fresh and pristine then unlike now choked up , dirty and covered in grime.

Yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.

What promise you had though, when brand new you graced the heavens before we gouged you out and burnt your soul and all things bad upon you wrought.

Yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.

You felt the thaw of ice ages then felt them come again, strange and huge beast wandered over your plains,you saw  man arrive and you watched his growing pains.You nursed us gently as we as humans grew. Sadly, we ungrateful, turned on you.

Yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.

How beautiful fresh and new were you when only wild beasts and flowers grew when storms were all that raged and and man had not yet started his cruel selfish rampage.

All of  you was fresh and new and you had such great things to do. Now we have dragged all that is good from you. We have laid you waste, you can no longer start anew.

Yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.

Sadly we have pushed you toward your end , we were ungiving , selfish we stole   we did not bend. We took from you and did not replace , we have fought wars across your body and we have scared your face.

Yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.

Oh! Earth mother we have pulled you on at such an un-holy pace , you have tried to warn us but we have slipped through your fingers so far , now from grace.

Your end is nigh and and it is all our fault ……….. and  yet you love us still. You are patient with us now even though we treat you ill.
