Mother! All alone at home, estranged and uncherished,
Forgetful of her love and prayers is her family, causing a conscience anguished;
Comfortably buried are her pursuits to raise and nurture them into the accomplished and established.
Here she is, still silently enduring... with utterly no rebuke
An unwitting husband and discourteous children,
So is our exploits towards Mother Nature - I pray that she summon up the strength to survive the nuke.
Pardon us dear Mother Earth
For calls to preserve you are much underrepresented,
For being unmindful of you, as we are to the real living God -
Our very own Mother whose silent weep is often unattended.
