There Must Be Balance (Hour 16)

Tornadoes and cyclones 

increasing each year

Volcanoes and earthquakes

strike millions with fear 

The sun grows hotter 

each June and July 

There’s snowfall in Florida

no one is quite sure why 


People are hungry and angrier now

our small planet bursting her seams

Cars and homes running on oil

leading us downhill making us mean


Politics laced with self serving greed

running each country into the ground

The ones who could change things 

never bother to make a sound


I can’t help but wonder 

I can’t help but cry from the time 

of my childhood and on up to now 

Why is the earth in this pantomime?
