What to do, every time, you spend a dime, ask yourself......


I wonder, don’t’ you too,
If what they say is true ,
That rape is rape, no matter what,
The pregnancy you will abort?
I wonder too, that this is so,
How could we sink so low?
Rape the Mother that our own,
That only love to us has shown,
Her maiden name, it is well known,
Though in many tongues is different shown,
Gaia, in tongue of olden Greece,
Her beauty too, it them too did please,
The life she holds within her realm,
All that is will overwhelm,
But, yet, no more we do her beauty see,
The meadows lush, the stately tree,
We ravage, like the locust billions now,
All she’s given, beneath we plough,
Death, destruction, we bring her harm,
And ravage all that is her charm,
A war of greed we wage upon her,
No higher learning will deter,
But guilty are we all, to rape her,
For few stands up this crime deter,
What better cause to fight a war,
Might they though all with vile us tar,
To rise and fend off her demise,
And take up arms, to still her cries?
Rape you say, it sure is that, and guess,
To whatever God you must confess,
You’re killing future generations,
Bring misery to all, the tribes and nations,
Have you not an ounce of shame,
All this is happening in your name,
Will we not soon repay our debt?
For sure, without her we’ll be dead.
Take action, show you care,
Instead of laying waste and bare,
Think twice of what you do,
Did she not give your life to you?©21/08/2012

Yes we ravage the Earth, miserable stewards, mankind. Thank you for your big and caring heart and the poetry that expresses so much Jasmin.

i defer to Odin's commentary and concur;
once again, my thinking caring friend,
you make us evaluate what and who we really are
and where our values (if we've any left) lie

bless you every day, Jasmin

Yes, humans can be very thoughtless and uncaring about all the beauty that surrounds us.

You've penned a meditation on the global mentality of "violence" for which there is no other attachment or definition needed. Rape of man, rape of nature, rape of self (too few people even know what the hell it means to perpetrate passionate violence on the self and what it entails in hubristic gall). As to the current debate with man, anyone that subscribes to the extreme right views, where a constitutional amendment is about to be in the works to outlaw abortion completely: "... Republicans approved platform language on Tuesday calling for a constitutional amendment outlawing abortion with no explicit exceptions for cases of rape or incest." Apropos of your poem, how many out there think that the rape and pillage of nature will also meet the standard of extremists, rendering all environmental considerations subservient to the power, the greed and the violent nature of the profit barons. Sad. Very sad. BTW, very well worded.

Yes, we have raped Mother Earth too much already and she is reeling in pain. Seen one time to start thinking seriously about what we are doing and carefully chart our course the 21st-century, rather than fall back to earlier mistakes.

yep current humans are a blight

We ravage, like locusts, billions now,
All she’s given us, beneath we plough,
Death, destruction, we bring her harm,
And ravage all that is(was)her charm.

So powerfully sad, and it's so sadly true.
