The Planet

The winds swirled

out in space

as the bones of the planet

are put into place

A deep voice speaks

each question is answered

after some jiggling

the planet is plastered

Mountains and valleys

oceans and the seas

deserts and rocks

heat and deep freeze

So much life

diversity greets each new day

in perfect harmony

going separate ways

Along comes a man

intent on destruction

another man follows

doing reconstruction

Created from the dust there is

enough for every life form

if all give freely

which should be the norm

From sunrise to sunset

we are all alive

if the planet is taken care of

all will thrive
