Ah the Environment…

Ah the Environment…

Bane to all real estate developers.

“You’re costing lots of jobs,”

They say,

But what they mean is ‘You’re costing me money!”

Same with oil drillers, mines of all kinds,

Plastics manufacturers,

People complaining about noise from diesel engines,

Air pollution causing childhood asthma,

‘There go those tree huggers again’.

Imagine that, caring about non-human lives

As if 8 billion wasn’t enough,

As if species extinction is acceptable collateral damage,

As if my becoming wealthy is not as important as

Rain forests producing oxygen so that

Organisms can breathe.
