Dear Earth, I know you've given me these verdure fields and lush greens,
I know you've got the best locales- I've seen many movie scenes.
I know that you have aged, and need rest,
I know, that despite all odds, you're still trying your best
To make sure that we are well-fed and hale and hearty,
To make sure that life on you is nothing short of a party!
Fruits of all kinds, many a flavoured water too,
We can come, go and take as we please, without a curfew.
I love being with you, but remember I'm only human after all,
So when I find an oil rig or too, I put my head over my heart's call.
I start digging, burning, slashing, whatever gets the job done,
I get coal, petrol, gas- the works, you know, it is great fun!
For me, not so much for you I suppose,
But come on, I also give you a generous dose;
Of plastic and microbeads, smoke and dust- does it seem cruel?
That's just my way of expressing love, for you are my fuel!!!
