LEFT BEHIND

A NEW WORLD AS TAKEN OVER

BLUE SKIES, BLUE SEAS, GREEN GRASS, GREEN TREES.

TIDY PAVEMENTS TIDY MINDS

PEOPLE WITH MANNERS....

ALL LEFT BEHIND

DO WE DECIDE THAT OUR LIVES WOULD BE BETTER?

AT A FASTER PACE.

AFTER WE DECIDE TO LEAVE THE HUMAN RACE?

WE HAVE NO TIME FOR OTHERS

AS WE SPEED ALONG

DROPPING LITTER WE DONT CARE

WE HAVE NO TIME

WE HAVE TO BE THERE

WE HAVE TO BE THERE FAST.

WE HAVE NO TIME TO WASH OUR HAIR.

SPRAY IT.

WE HAVE NO TIME TO WASH OUR PETS

SPRAY THEM

WE HAVE NO TIME TO ICE A CAKE

SPRAY IT

WE HAVE NO TIME TO CLEAN OUR SHOES

,TO CLEAN OUR WINDOWS

TO POLISH OUR BRASS,

SPRAY IT

 SPRAY THEM

SPRAY OUR CROPS

SPRAY OUR FOOD

SPRAY OUR MINDS

MAKE US FOOLS

SPRAY OUR SKIES AND SPRAY OUR SEAS

THEN MY GRANDCHILDREN

THEY WILL SEE.

YELLOW SKIES,YELLOW SEAS.

YELLOW GRASS,YELLOW TREES.

LITTERED PAVEMENTS

LITTERED MINDS.

PEOPLE WHO HAD HOPE

ALL

LEFT

BEHIND

The End
