Seconds to destroy

Culture and nature's wonder
All left, "I was here!"

Food in different colors
Fill your plate and eat

Color for the eyes
Nutrients for the body

What's true and what's false?
Who's concerned, who's pretending?
Do you really care?

Camouflage in green
To profit in every scheme
Tired of this charade

Just jargons without actions
Mere marketing ploy

New form of debt swap

Displace many to please few
Lands taken for less

A foreign fish brought
To fix the murky waters
Brings endemic death

And always the last to sleep
Women of households

As she feeds me from her plate
Slowly as she faints

The milk from a mother's breast
Life from life itself

If mom's milk is natural
Healthy, safe, and free?

Not pills to placate the pain
A piecemeal approach

From the smoke and the poison
We cannot escape

In an isolated world
Willingly away
