Blog Your Blessing : Respect Mother Earth

The Hungry Planet

I'm a hungry planet, I had a youthful face.

They were in such a hurry to go to outer space.

They needed bombs and tungsten, ore and iron too,

So they climbed, and they dug, and they blew-- divided me right in two.

I'm a hungry planet orbiting in the sky.

The things they did to hurt me pass on by and by.

Now here I am all alone, they never ever learn.

Well I had to shake and quake and will make their houses burn.

I'm a hungry planet, I had the bluest seas.

All the people kept chopping down all my finest trees.

Poisoning my oxygen, diggin' in my skin.

Takin' more out of my Earth, than they'll ever put back in.

I'm a hungry planet.

This is lovely. Makes me grateful for green places and mindful of how they suffer under my feet. A good reminder.

Happy BYB Sunday.

@sandy carlson-The Earth suffers more from the strip mines, oil wells and roadcuts than from your footsteps.

@nancyrowina-Glad to see you back for BYBS.

@sue-Oh, girl, you had to bring up age. I turned 55 this week. LOL
