state of confusion
Where is the logic in destroying
that which cannot be replaced?
How can the mighty corporations
rationalize THIS deal?
Iíve walked among the avenues,
my eyes have beheld giants,
the oldest one bears the scars
of the men who tried to conquer her.
Then there was the lady who lived
high in a redwood for two years,
and those who linked their bodies in protest
received a dose of legalized cruelty.
All those nuts in Cali.
All to save the trees.
When my son was five,
he wrote to the President,
told him he must save
I hope he never loses passion.
