The Earth Cries out

As you sit in your
organic-fibered
eco-friendly sofas
Sipping your
all-natural
medicinal herb teas
A home filled with
energy-saving
water-saving
earth-saving
"green" additions
An electric-powered
pollution reducing
alternative fuel
powered vehicle
in your driveway
Nothing is too expensive
when it comes to saving
the earth's natural resources.
While a child cries out
in hunger
And a mother cries out
knowing there is nothing
You save the earth
One fluorescent lightbulb
at a time.

Wow...  I'm speechless...  And I'm also very saddened that I am the first to comment on this piece.  This is powerful, and veru simply spoken.  This a true reality that breaks my heart, and it is something that young people should be confronted with.  Well done.
