EYE WATERSHED COLORADO
And after the storms pass in violent strife
will you have been nourished, and cherished,
by the skies above or pay the debt and perish
for the time we have taken off her planetary life?
All was given for man.
Once with work all were able to stand without need.
Each taking only according to the family need.
Is there another we can point to whose greed
has shaped the pain, nature through times passing
which had all routed, under control, now crashing
must violently rush down to crush the simple folk
while the planet raping brave and bold
have lost nothing, neither home or grubstake poke.
except maybe a golden point off their portfolio?
