Chemical balances that balance life


The sulphur pits never dry up

The methane tunnels still exist

Yet in the midst of our chemically balanced madness

We thrive thanks to nitrogen and oxygen bliss.

Breathe in the good air kids

But kind the pesticide pollution

And the aviation fuel

And motor car fuel particulates

That penetrate and fill your lungs

Yet you may still be the lucky ones

As future less lucky generations

Struggle in a less well balanced place

With a lack of trees and the toxic wastes

That chemical companies create

Which is why we need a change

Not later that’s not good enough

It needs to be urgent and right away

To stop this earth’s man made destruction and decay.
