ONE SKY
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

One Sky
Of heavens blue
Is all we have above..
And yet we spread our
Poisons and this, our Sky we love?

One Ocean
Deep green and blue
Is all we have below...
And yet we slaughter all it's Life
And our trash upon it...sow!

One Earth
Of rich fertile sod
Is all we have to plant...
Yet we spray, pollute and foul
And food we eat...we can't!

Can we live without the Rain
And Snow, without the Sky?
Can we stop the harm we're doing
Beneath God's very Eye?

Can we afford to soil the Seas
And harvest it 'til it dies?
Do we even see the harm we do?
Or hear the painful cries?

We are a part of all of Life
From the weakest to the strong
Somehow we aren't the smartest
If we cannot see what's wrong!

Immediately we must stop the greed
And think of other Life
And realize that Human Beings
Cause all the strain and strife!

We cause all the wars and death
Of every kind and kin
And do not care who suffers most
Nor do we admit our Sin!

When will we cease this waste of Life
And weep for what we've lost?
And cherish what we still have left
And what to us it cost?

Oh, God in Heaven, give Man the brains
To cease any more to die!
For we only have one precious Earth..
One Sea below...
One Sky!........
