Why are so many of us
Dying, losing ground,
Getting lost?

Man says
The cost of everything
Is going up, up, up
And people need
Our forests,
Our jungles,
Our seas.

Your timber:
Our food.

Just dirt
Our cities

Clean water:
Our supermarkets.

Your machines
Turn our worlds inside-out.
To us, your machines are
Worse than hurricanes,
As dangerous as fire.

Some of you wonder about us.
We know you care.
Please put your ears
To the earth and listen.
Can you hear?
This is a time
Of new beginnings

Let’s say no to xenophobia
And carry on with our lives
