September 30 – The Human Plague

Mother Gaia drew her bow
And let her arrow fly
Her savage cry rang out with it
As it soared into the sky

Father Time released his sand
And let the rivers flow
His tired eyes were almost closed
It was time for him to go

Sister Moon looked down in pain
While her family fell away
She cried and all her teardrops fell
Turned lightness into grey

Brother Sun just smiled his smile
As he refused to shine
He knew the world was dying first
But he was always fine

Baby Earth was cold as ice
Breathing its last breath
Its body sick with parasites
That brought with them its death
