The New Earth ( a poem of reconciliation)
You're welcome to the new earth, what we now call the "Big Pond".
The people, who once were here, took a hike, not to correspond.
I hear they flew to the planet Mars, all live on a diet of candy bars,
First, they ruined this lovely world, hastily, then just flew to the stars.
We all certainly do try to stay out of the filthy water as much as possible,
All the waste and nasty pollution that they spilled in there, abominable.
We're glad the humans now have left our planet, never any more greed,
They couldn't even take care of their own family, clothe and just to feed.
The people once here, their lives too abrupt, their way of life so corrupt,
They hardly worried over the other creatures, our fresh water, used it up.
Took little care in preservation, liked partying, had fun on every occasion.
Their day dreams, gave their lives the okay, it seems, as in an infatuation.
I hope all the critters on the planet Mars, stay well away, are not contaminated,
The human race, its propagation, so overwhelmed, our poor planet, deteriorated.
I hope when these odd figures, with big heads and eyes, reach their destination,
They don't try to re-create a new world, later, one of such a horrible consternation.
