Purpose

Inspired by “The Cool Green” by Les Murray

Pretty butterflies in the sky,
why do you fly?
Pretty butterflies in the sky,
do you earn?

Little ants on the ground,
why do you push yourself so hard?
Little ants on the ground,
do you have a currency?

Oh Almighty humans in the world,
why do you chase money?
Oh Almighty humans in the world,
do you only do it to feed yourself?

Godly earth that spins around,
why did you let us figure you out?
Godly earth that spins around,
Should’ve never let yourself be found.

Don’t let man vanquish every bit of you,
Although man may not be as big as the dinosaurs,
It is very lethal.
It will suck you dry and manage to create another earth!
This curiosity and greed of consumption are what drives it after all.
