PLANET EARTH (a view from above)

The sky is crying
And the world is watching
While forests are burning
And the homeless are dying

The sky is crying
And the pipelines keep flowing
While the Stockmarket is bursting
And the rivers are choking

The vultures are soaring
And drug prices keep rising
While the old and the frail are suffering
And the whole world watching

The sky is crying
And children are starving
While the fat cats keep licking
And rich keep on hoarding

The whole world is watching
but nobody notices…  

                   The sky is crying.
