Mother Earth’s skin is gorgeous. She cares for it well.
She does not use cosmetics, cold creams or the like.
But she’s beautiful as people see her from space.
She’s a greenish blue marble with such a clear face.
And she does what she needs to do, should disease strike.
She can get people moving like bats out of hell.
We The People are ones who infect her fine skin
And cause blisters and blemishes through disregard
For her womanhood. We treat her like an old bitch.
Yet we’re willing to rape her so some may get rich.
When her face gets too dirty and too deeply scarred
She will wipe herself clean so new life can begin.
The Earth’s skin is an organ – the largest of all.
That’s in terms of her surface where all life takes place.
As we help care for her skin as we do our own
She may see us as not a disease overgrown.
All the damage done to her, she well can erase.
She’ll get rid of us too, and it seems it’s her call.
