Bird Song (#1037)

I can still hear the birds in the city,
Singing songs and chirping something witty,
It’s a pleasant reminder that nature is still there,
Even with all that concrete and polluted air,
To the damage, we’re mostly blind,
But perhaps Mother Nature will survive humankind,
Those little birds seem to say she might,
Even if we don’t become eco-warriors and fight,
There are still bastions of bark and green,
Many of them remain unknown and unseen,
People seem to want to build on any unused space,
So, they clear-cut and pave as if it were race,
It’s probably all for the best they remain that way,
Otherwise, we might cause our own extinction one day,
The Earth is our home, not something to claim or take,
To believe otherwise is a huge mistake,

Any Thoughts?
