The Rain Forest

The Rain Forest

Don’t cut down the rain forest
Or burn down the trees
This life giving foliage
In the high canopy’s

Please remember the creatures
That lived in these trees
Destroyed by the flames
For mankind’s selfish greed

But remember that nature
Is powerful as humans will see
When it rises to strike
Those who cut down the trees

A blight on their land
With flooding in depth
As the forest is no more
It kept the water in check

A useless chunk of arid land
On once a forest used to stand
No trees or life or humans to
They sold their heritage
To the logging crews
