"Nature's Cry"
by [email protected] 

In nature all creatures unite
as victims of human might
Once untouched forest becoming worn
with each whose life was torn

The serenity of this place
is stolen without a trace
Purity lost and violence won
with each crack of a gun

Animals subjected to our greed
killing as we feel the need
We forget their living worth
as the beauty of our earth

Layer by layer we quickly peel
more and more we calmly steal
Rapidly we destroy this land
extinction by the human hand

Hunter's leave a rancid smell
where the murdered beasts fell
Fallen trees can shade no more
yet nature's cry we still ignore
