Wasteful Beings and Loving Creatures


Wasteful beings we've become 

Loving creatures that suffer silently 

Not by choice, but by force.


Loving Creatures, who struggle for happiness 

Wasteful beings, who struggle for acceptance

Not by choice, but by the status quo.


Wasteful beings, the greedy squirrels hogging all the nuts 

Loving creatures, survivng off of scraps

Not by choice, but by force.


Wasteful beings that should be loving

Loving creatures, who should learn to be wasteful

Not by force, but by choice.


The world, full of wastefull beings and loving creatures 

Balancing out the worl, the wrong way

Poverty. Food. Ungratfulness. 

The fuel the Earth runs on.
