The Hunting Expedition
The land that saw us grow
had become a bad terrain
to tread upon as the python
surfs the land looking for its prey.
The river that emitted water from
its bowel to give us life had been
soiled by the blood of the fishes
its nurtured till adulthood.
The sky that covered our nakedness
had become a fierce looking furnace
that eats up our flesh, thus making
us look skinny while it grows fat.
Let there be another land!
Let there be another river!
Let there be another sky!
Before they arrive, we need to wake up!
