Mother Nature.

We speak of Mother Nature
but if nature is a mother
she’s remarkably uncaring.
What mother is so sparing
when it comes to being kind?

The world turns, lightening flashes
forests burn, thunder crashes,
sea floods the land,
vegetation and sand
and the creatures within
must flee for their lives or die.
Mother Nature is a lie.

The earth has no pity
yes, it can be pretty
but cruelty is rife -
from a human point of view.

Nature has no point of view
It simply gives us life.
Then live or die or getting by,
easy living or trouble and strife
a death that’s calm or gory -
that’s another story.
