Plunder the Earth!
By M. Linda Steffey

Plunder the earth
And murder all life
They leave not a stone
Unturned!
Armed with the gun
And the trap
And the knife
What they can't take
They will burn!

The fields were once filled
The seas and the air
Mother Nature takes care
Of Her own,
But man with his greed
Only takes and destroys
He cannot leave Nature
Alone!

Count the many killed off
On this earth
Those which are gone
Won't return!
After they've vanished
We learn of their worth
When will mankind learn?

Keep wild places free
Filled with all of His creatures
Made by God's loving hand
For we are all one
Under His sun
And formed by
Mother Earth's sand....
