Spirit, at times, seems to pretend to be an alien reporter, who is
Curious to learn more about the strange ways we humans
Relate to each other.
We are, He tells me, or seem to be, otherwise intelligent beings,
So, why, He asks, are we, or some of us, so interested in
Establishing new schools of thought?
What seems to be needed, considering such widespread
Environmental destruction, is a new way of being, a new way
Of living with each other, in a more mutually supportive
Manner, and in harmony with nature.
To exploit natural resources is to abuse your future, our future,,
And the future of tomorrow’s people.
I want very much to defend myself and everyone else, but
I don’t know how.
There is no defence. He reads my thoughts. But, we will
Learn from experience, the cost of our neglect.
