Would you someday soon care that
my birds will no longer twitter,
my butterflies not flutter,
my many insects become extinct?
Would you be overcome with worries
not seeing my bees
sucking their honey-making nectars?
Would you sorely miss
many of my wild animals
as they slowly disappear and vanish?
Would you care if
the pure shimmering streams
turn turbid with filth
and the air mercilessly chokes?
