Thumbs up

Thumbs  up
to  the  primitive  tree  man
his  war  with  our  fathers  was  treason
But  our  minds  can't  perceive
that  his  deeds  were  our  roots
All  his  knots  we  untied
to  gain  freedom

With  the  heart  of  an  eagle
we  took  to  the  sky
The  world  wasn't  flat
and  soon  we  could  fly
We  strip  mine  our  farmlands
and  level  our  forests
We turn  a  great  mountain
to  rubble  before  us

Our  standard  of  living
is  that  of  a  glutton
We'll  defend  it  from  all
with  the  touch  of  a  button
Our  doctors  research  us
where  pride  shouldn't  be
Regardless  of  sex
they'll turn  you  into  me

To  the  stars  in  the  heavens
our  sights  we  have  set
And  the  faster  we  leave
the  much  farther we'll  get
Still  clinging  to  trees
we  forgot  to  extract
Our  ancestors
thumbs  up
Cheer
" Don't  hurry  back !!! "

Thanks everyone ... it's not that often that I write something serious ... but when I do you'll end up at a loss for words from the shock of the idea
