Darkness creeping

The dark is threatening to consume

It’s creeping in subversively

It’s spreading just like a disease

With the felling of every tree

And the polluting of every sea

The darkness malevolently creeps

Like a canker and is like a carbuncle

On our earth destroying our ecology

Eating away at nature and festering

And to all of us that care it is distressing

Seeing the darkness creeping in

And preternaturally destroying beauty

And systematically hacking and burning

Leaving nothing but smouldering embers

And the pain and loss we remember

And it spurs us on towards creating change

For the sake of earth and its name.
