Giving to Greed

A long time is not long enough
the land opens up swallows the tear of man
sorrows she feels and opens her vains
giving her everything and making more
for man to share
greed has taken over
the fever of man is hot
sorrow she feels
opens her land swallows his tears
as she shares her blood
that's in her vains
bomb's bursting rocks moving
defacing the land that gives
taking all of what she is making
slight breeze the warm sun
she protects the men
that's turning her into
a wasteland

There is no question we have made a mess out of this land. Like George Carlin said, we took this beautiful landscape that we inherited, well actually we stole it from the Indians and turned it into a coast to coast shopping mall.motorcycle popcorn danceline beverage delivery
