RAPE OF THE RAINFOREST

Ferns gently uncurling
Caterpillars unfurling
Waterfall swirling

Dappled mist beaming
Forest floor steaming
Life overflows to teeming

A yellow tractor

Slash and burn
Wheels turn
Man will never learn

Gold rush scheming
Paper worth reaming
Rubber baron dreaming

Cattle and soy
Build and destroy
Economy: the new joy

Smoke thickening
Progress quickening
Forest sickening

Rubber worth stealing
Bananas unpeeling
Are plants unfeeling?

The size of Spain
A forest without rain
An equator in pain

Rape, it’s seeming
Extinction streaming
Trees screaming
-Cronin Detzz
