Now is the Time
Now is the time for man to make a stand
To halt the destruction he has caused
In the past.
Top of the pops in the ratings
Of earth’s inhabitants, brain-wise,
Man has been irresponsible,
Immature and negligent,
Causing untold damage to our planet.
His greed has overcome his morals
If, indeed, he had any to start.
He has been the destroyer for too long,
Trashing, over time,
Undiscovered flora and fauna
Which may have held the key to cures
Of some dread diseases.
If he wishes to survive the consequences
Of his rash behaviour
He must now, immediately,
Admit his failure to fulfil his role as leader
And change his ways to save us all.
Man, the destroyer, must now become
Man, the protector, conserver, overseer and guardian
Of our planet’s health.
This is the only way our species can survive
Into the future and beyond.
