Saving Earth

What is this dance we do
moving across the toxic floor
while deluding ourselves
we can indulge a little more?

Shall we do this dance of death,
our eyes closed tight to the truth
while we place our greatest treasure
in a negligent noose?

Let us cease this dance
where we rape and pillage,
and remember what we think we own
we have only the right to manage.
