Mother Earth or Mother Nature, what every you call her, has been under attack for many years. Whether "global warming" is real or not we humans have been abusing this planet that provides us sustenance and life, with no regard for the future.

We take and take from her body never giving back
Poisoning her over and over, now she rebels
Changing her path she is responding to the attack
Listen to her now on the screaming winds as she wails

Shaking with rage as she opens her gutted bowels
Spewing forth hot molten rock and fire from deep within
And we do nothing except offer up denials
Listening to stupid men who think they can still win

Her instructions to live in harmony with all things
But greed has destroyed her lands, rivers, trees and seas
For decades we have ignored her plaintive rumblings
No longer do we respect her sacred memories

Her power is as amazing as her vengeful wrath
She wants to lead us back to her harmonious path
Listen to her or we won’t be here for the aftermath
Listen well for our Mother Earth is on the warpath

We love this poetry Because we are volunteer Environmental Ambassador.
I post "Mother Earth is Angry" to our group E-mail that just short time
someone and myself already translate to Chinese poetry. And also we want to share with more people to rise awareness for environmental Issues.
When we request Steven's permission that he sent back to me immediately.
Thank you very much Steven. This is a wonderful poem.
