One Careful Owner..... Or Not.

One Careful Owner…..Or Not..

I killed an asthmatic child today,
by starting my cars engine.
It was not my fault in any way,
god’s country says, it’s not a sin.

I’ll go to church pray awhile
god can ease a parent’s pain.
It’s a pity I can’t walk a mile,
so, I’ll drive up there again.

Later at my weekly shop,
with luck I’ll kill an old Dear.
Doesn’t matter if I fail to stop,
it intensifies the fear.

See I’m a great hunting fan,
but I’m also versatile.
driving to hunts when I can,
I love to kill in style.

The planet, oh it belongs to US,
poor people and animals aren’t nice.
Those planet savers make me cuss,
so what if we melt some ice.

Don’t they know I need more water,
to keep my lawns lush and green.
Countries today are so much hotter,
and planet savers, so very mean,

Those idiots say change your ways,
they say use a cleaner fuel.
They say count planets life in days,
surely, we’ll find somewhere cool.

Wont we ?????.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
The planet doesn't belong to humans, but we still choose it's fate. Lets hope, ( I say hope, but if your religious you can pray, i'm not so I will hope) we're not to late.
Editing stage: 


The attitude you show so well applies to all kinds of apathy on the environment. Personally I am very concerned about the rain forests and have worked to preserve El Yunque in Puerto Rico along with the coasts and very important areas near the coasts which greedy and unthinking people would love to cover with concrete and shopping malls.

Thank you Robert, and I am sorry for this late reply. I admire the work your doing to save our rain forests and wish I could do more. Regards Roscoe..

Roscoe Llane,

Religion will rip your faith off, and return
for the mask of disbelief that's left.
