The Nature Strikes Back


Carbon plutocrats

poison the planet

with their noxious plants.


To uproot their briars

Nature prepares her seeds.

First will come the fire,

followed by the freeze.


The focus of the sun

will emblaze to ash

the factories,



The revenge of the wind

extracted against

the coal smokestacks

and the oil rigs.


The purging of the rain

clears away the trash--

the factories, refineries,

the coal smokestacks,

and the oil rigs.
