BELLS TOLL

The bells of brown and yellow hue are ringing

extolling out the sorrow of the land

quite ready to endure a new beginning

so tired of watching rivers turn to sand.

 

Too weary of the sun's relentless burning

emasculated - raped in modern years

and now despaired of mortals ever learning

as summer rain falls silently as tears.

 

The species huddle - hoping for redemption

but daily losing habitat long shared

all watching as today brings no exemption

lamenting for another forest bared.

 

Behold ongoing slaughter of creation

perceive those pealing bells that warn us all

the price for our relentless decimation:

extinction of the Earth - and mankind's fall.
