The New Earth ( a poem of reconciliation)

Updated on July 3, 2016
Hello...there's not too many of us that are left after the big exiting of people...
Hello...there's not too many of us that are left after the big exiting of people...

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.

I was getting tired of those moth balls...
I was getting tired of those moth balls...


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 can't stay too long in this brackish water...
I can't stay too long in this brackish water...


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.

These humans surely did evolve into strange figures before they left...
These humans surely did evolve into strange figures before they left...
Those humans and their big head and eyes...
Those humans and their big head and eyes...

      And if Man is forced to abandon the toxic Earth they created, will they have learned their lesson and treat their new home with more respect?

      Excellent message, whonu!

      This is why I am doing my best to educate people, and it is mostly our generation that has caused this. The current generation seems to be a little more in tune, so perhaps they will bring thinks to as close as normalcy as possible. However, it saddens me that the fisherfolk, no matter what their age, are leaving behind their trash for us to handle. We have no choice but to do it, or it will end up in the water. I don't even use straws, as they end up in the ocean.

      A brilliant call to arms to be proactive in protecting our planet.

      If only the petroleum industry, coal industry, drug industry, auto industry, fishing industry, and lumber industry could all come together and devise a plan to take charge once again of a clean earth. Just think how this would provide real positive futures for our heirs on the face of this planet. whonu

      I hear you and woe to us if we continue to destroy our water and land. Soon there will be no clean water and only deadness around. This is a wakeup call. Bravo!!

      Thank you for your review my friend. I feel that it is past due that we try to make up for lost time on this planet. whonu

      Dramatic poetry here which you share a lot of truth for our careless and selfish acts on this planet.

      Thank you Jodah, my friend. Most of my friends on these pages don't need this reminder. At times we are so frustrated. It has to come out. whonu

      I echo the sentiments of this poem, whonu. Mankind has made a mess of this planet for the other creatures that inhabit it.
