THINKING OF MAN

 Wow!, think about it, everyone has changed just 
 As the times have changed,

 Way back in time when food had to be hunted for daily,
 Appreciation for a bite.

 Today fast food on every corner that is slowly 
 Killing all around the world,

 When we don't finish our plates then we simply toss 
 It away, down the drain.

 There was a time when a man could drink from a 
 Lake or stream, refreshing,

 Today without an intelligent thought it is perhaps 
 For a dollar, polluted water.

 Way back in the west, many places, in fact, a body  
 Could rest their weary head

 Under a tree, make camp and sleep, hunt, have 
 Some peace without a stare,

 We come to the future where a person is now labeled 
 Homeless, we stare.

 Loitering and vagrancy are the words used, no 
 Sleeping, hard to survive,

 Move along it will be said, to the one who dares 
 To be free and live in peace.

 It's come to where neighbors fighting and the 
 Sounds of sirens are the way,

 Nature is screamed at, a burden to many as they 
 Make their beautiful sounds in the day.

 Trash in the streets but that's okay, another will  
 Clean it if they come this way,

 Thinking of man, this way of the future, we now   
 Pay a price for water, air, and even dirt.
