WHY?
By M. Linda Steffey

Does anyone know why it rains?
Perhaps it's God crying in pain
For His creatures who die..
Could it be that the Heavens are blue
For the bad things that some people do?
Can't you hear a sigh?...

Imagine a baby deer born
Away from its' mother it's torn
When man shoots his gun!
He kills all the creatures he sees
Plunders earth and cuts down her trees
No wonder animals RUN!...

Whether gold or it is fur that he wants
It is all the earth that he haunts
There is no hiding place!
Nothing can get in his way
He will hunt it both night and day
It's a flaw in his race!...

God gave all these gifts to mankind
When they are gone
No more will he find..
We must save our earth!
The air, the sea, and the land
And all of the creatures which stand
God gave them great worth!

(c) M. Linda Steffey 1990
