THE END OF PLANET EARTH

http://www.worldartfriends.com/store/791-jamila-mafra-as-lagrimas-dos-anjos-e-os-versos-do-amor.html

I hear the noise
Of chainsaw
cutting lives.
The air that I breathe
Now it smells like poison.
the rain does not refresh
The rain now is acidic.

We killed the thirst
With tastes like chlorine,
And when the earth cries out in pain
call it evil;
At the time of the hurricanes,
By the time the
floods take their homes.

Before it was cold,
now the winter is warm,
I wanted to ski on snow
but the ice has melted!

Yes, I'm afraid!
Yes, I'm afraid!
I'm afraid to walk through the streets
And not see more trees,
I'm afraid to look at the sky
and not see the birds,
I'm afraid to open the tap
and have no more water.
Yes, I'm afraid!
Yes, I'm afraid!

JM Jamila Mafra.

humongus poetry... simply

humongus poetry... simply genius.

 

reminds me of this song from 1993:

 

 

 

here are the lyrics:

 

Rio Summit, '92
Street people kidnapped
Hid from view
"To save the earth"
Our rulers met
Some had other
Secret plans

No... No... No... No...

Biotech
Biotech
Biotech
Say what?

Strip-mine the Amazon
Of cells of life itself
Gold rush for genes is on
Natives get nothing

Biotech
Biotech
Biotech
Is Godzilla

Mutations cooked in labs
Money-mad experiments
New food + medicine?
New germs + accidents!
Like Cubatao
"World's most polluted town"
Air melts your face
Deformed children all around
Bio-technology
Ain't what's so bad
Like all technology
It's in the wrong hands

Cut-throat corporations
Don't give a damn
When lots of people die
From what they've made

Biotech
Biotech
Biotech
Is A.I.D.S.?

Stop!!!

 

kisses,

Rui Lima
