It’s not just the woman who bore
you, folks—it’s the Earth that moves you.
The Mother who spins on axis, swirling
around the sun and stars on time
So we can wake up and live and try at life.
So how on Earth can you litter?
Throw your cigarette butt, already littering
your lungs and heart on her?
What devil inhaled you, when you
decided to inhale smoke, killing yourself
slowly over many years?
God bless us to honor our mother.
To live a long time in this land, we
must honor her, and fight to keep her
Honor your mother, man.
Honor your mother, woman. Honor that
which gave us life, and never
throw trash on her, no matter how low
we go; turn around, it’s better to go
back to pre-civilization, pre-religion,
living naked with the natives than to
roll around in this human-made muck,
helicopters and sirens calling out a warning
shot to the Father god that we don’t care.
Send Samuel back, and ask God to be
Shhh! Listen. Close your eyes.
See yourself caring. Loving. God bless us
to honor our Mother and care.
