Be Earth's Friend, Be Happy

We have forgotten to live right, think right

Pot of gold at end of rainbow, no need!

Ill health and untimely deaths such a fright

Conscious awareness helps to succeed.

 

Pot of gold at end of rainbow no need

With ease, one gets sucked up in the vortex

Conscious awareness helps to succeed

before depression gets into cortex.

 

With ease one gets sucked up in the vortex

It’s time to talk to oneself candidly

before depression gets into cortex

address the malaise, not gaze passively.

 

It’s time to talk to oneself candidly

Act with right aptitude and attitude

address the malaise, not gaze passively

Earth needs nothing, not even gratitude.

 

Act with right aptitude and attitude

Live and let live to enjoy her treasures

Earth needs nothing, not even gratitude

Preserve for posterity - some pleasures!

 

Live and let live to enjoy her treasures

Game changing acts to bring in cheer

Preserve for posterity - some pleasures!

Let’s hurry! Dreadful end’s already near.

 

Game changing acts to bring in cheer

Ill health and untimely deaths such a fright

Let’s hurry, dreadful end’s already near!

We have forgotten to live right, think right…
