Old Mother Earth

old mother earth, your choked horizons sicken me
this blue planet, once living now a poisoned sea
betrayed by chemical conversion, left an empty shell
ancient garden paradise, now a living hell

whole worlds warped by wounds run deep
revenant husks now adrift in furious sleep

flesh fingers form
to strip mine and sterilize
bleed planets dry
and bleach the skies

Now we fly far from the sun
to forget the evils, earth undone
fly away to new fountainheads
what we've left behind is surely dead

Searching perpetual darkness
inside vast nothingness
between pulsars, star crossed
frozen, waiting, alone and lost
