Earth Fever

Earth Fever

We love your Earth
Music colored clouds
Grass stages built for
Dancing cross the sun

An expanding invasion
Turns forests to swamps
Clouds to steam
Talking to their gods
The globe’s new masters claim all rights

For millions of years they lived in peace
Now know fission and fusion
Burn earth to a high fever

Are they cancer or virus?
We see a repeated tale:
Primitives prevail

They will be sloughed off like fleas
Their biblical prophecies
Turn real

When you look to the future
You will meet the past
And find you’re not there
