We of the Western World

We of the western world

Indeed have the power

To preserve what was once held

But have only acted in the closing hour.

 

We stand protected in our bubble,

With our vast wealth

Protecting us from any trouble,

Wasting what can keep our earth in health.

 

How could it take so long to detect?

Why do we show no sorrow?

We know how to profit but not how to protect

The people of tomorrow.
