The Walk
By Lyndia (Myoji-Hana)

I decided to take a walk one day to look at the hills and plains,

As I walked all I could see is land that had been murdered and slain.

I saw paper and cans, rubber and steel,

rusty old pipes and a half broken wheel.

As I watched this pitiful sight my heart was filled with pain,

I thought to myself this tragedy is such a pitiful shame.

I thought of starvation and poverty and of many dying and beasts,

I thought of forests and sugar beets and of many fields of wheat,

upon which dying animals and starving people may feed

if only you and I would change this era of compulsion and greed!

Take a stand to save the land, Give Mother Nature a helping hand!
