SMOKE ON THE WIND

MOTHER NATURE AND MAN

 

There was a time when the rivers were not pollutted, the forest was green and healthy, song birds sang to greet the new day. And then along came man, and today it is not that way.

There was a time when there was beauty in the face of a mountain. Then along came man and said, “I don’t care to look at you the way you are now, so I’m going to blow you up, carve you up, and give you a new look. People will come and look at you and say:  ‘Look what man has done. Isn’t it beautiful?'”

There was a time when children could be seen playing outdoors. Hopscotch, hide and seek, kick the can, shooting hoops and playing twenty-one and horse. You knew the kids for miles around and played with them. Then along came man and invented new games for children to play. It has been a long time since a can has been seen sitting in the middle of an alley, ready to be kicked, or chalk marks on the sidewalk and kids playing hopscotch.

There was a time when the earth was not so scared and sick, but then along came man. And now we are both under the weather and need to get better and live and play together.
