Smog has lifted across the land
All that’s left is shifting sand
Where once the raging river ran
Natures thirst is drained by man.
Deserted now the forest floor
Oil slicks mar the sandy shore
Wading birds all feather bound
Choking fish, a burial ground.
Businessmen in pin stripe suits
Ladies dressed in designer boots
Greenhouse gases getting hotter
All driven by the yen and dollar.
