Man asked nature
"What have you done to me
Mortified my body and turned me into a tree"
Mother nature answered in her defense,
Clogging my planet with acidic, Carboniferous, filthy, spew,
As the planet's mother, what else could I do?
now you can feel the effects of your carelessness
See all the suffering your greed has caused, all the duress!"
But man asked Mother Nature "what shall I consume?"
Mother Nature replied
with a sigh
"You my dear will soon become a broom!"
