TWO LANDS

I took a stroll through the lands

As far as my weary feet could take me

And came across a luxuriant green, full of trees

The atmosphere was sweet-smelling

The edibles taste naturally healthy

Many species fill the lands

Melodies of exotic birds, ring gloriously evermore

 

I took a stroll through the lands

As far as my weary feet could take me

And came across barren lands, full of fallen trees

The atmosphere was diesel-smelling

The edibles were corrupted chemically

Many species lost to the crime of man

Melodies of exotic birds, ring gloriously

nevermore

 

The result of a people, who changed the trees and

grass into steels and glass
