For every tree felled for lumber
The planet takes one less breath.
We deny that our individual acts
Inch us closer to a collective death.
Deforestation: an incidental plague
of mankind’s industrial revolution.
The effects cause twofold damage:
A lack of oxygen and more pollution.
Our voracious appetite for ‘more’
demands we obtain by any means.
No matter the global impact or cost.
We never worry about such things.
If a tree falls in the forest of denial
without a soul to witness the sound.
The truth can no longer be ignored
If the rainforest lies on the ground.
