Caretakers of this Earth

To all the living things

On our planet wide

That soar majestic wings

Or move with evening tide

That have a right to be

Sustaining on earth’s crust

Evolving from the sea

One day to lie in dust

You have a right to be

When will we learn our role?

Destroying all we see

Will greatly take its toll

I believe we were chosen

Caretakers of this earth

This question that I pose

Contemplating birth

Which skill is needed so?

We understand and work

Together with our foe

To sympathize not irk

Who is to teach this skill?

To all the living beings

I thought it was the will

Of nations honest kings?

Does only man have worth

Who lives and conquers all?

Caretakers of this earth

Accept this destined call!
