What power is loose in the world!

Too late, too late


We have woken her from her long nap

She has begun cleaning her earth

And will not stop until the shores are empty of life

All animals are extinguished

Excepting the very tiny /pure and simple

To begin again to begin again

As she has done so many times before.


What power is loose in the world?

Too late too late


To stop the greed

the misuse of water/land/trees

Especially the trees

She loved the snakes and the birds

And the strange colorful insects.

She loved us once, too

All these marvels will be erased


Her anger is loose in the world now

Too late, too late


She is ready to begin again/begin again

Ready to delete all life

Start over and try harder.

Next time.
