Every step outside you take
Every time you pick that flower
Every time you scale the tree
Gouging it cruelly

He moans.

Every animal you spot
Every time the robin bows a greeting
Every perfect sunset you watch
Caught in the moment

He's there

Every time you drive the car
You may as well run over him.
Every time you turn on a light
Wire him up and blow his fuses

We're killing him.

He was like a father
He taught us how to use the Earth
How to survive

We have abused his gift.

His name is Jack
Jack of the Green
Son to Gaia
Father to all
He's dying
Fading
Wilting
Like everything else
We are killing our father...

Aren't you proud?

Strangely enough, my favourite line is "He moans."
Don't think I'm a creepy perv or anything, but I think it's the most powerful. :shrug:

Nice job.

Thank you, I was wondering if it had the right effect because of the whole sexual connotations thing, but apparently it did :)
