America feels like a third world country to me when I consider the great gap between those who live in poverty and the wealthy and powerful few. You would think that the wealthy and the government they run would consider the people who inhabit this world with them as human also, as worthy of aid.
After Katrina, which destroyed the old city of New Orleans, we have had Irene, and super storm Sandy, and who knows what kind of weather will descend upon us next? The East coast of the US has been destroyed by these storms. Should the rest of the country not escape the crush of climate change, will we even have a continent to live on, or just a bunch of islands surrounding the largest, and most toxic, waste dump ever seen on the planet?
Goodbye, forever, green planet earth, in your glory you ruled the heavens.
finally your time has come to die!
In my mind you're alive,
the blue green of life that you spread around.
I promise green earth
I will not forget.
At least until I'm dead.
