Do we use the world?
Is it exploitation?
I wonder if we have this right,
For simply having the means,

When you tear down a rainforest,
Do you feel like you’re bettering the world?

When you spray chemicals in a rabbits eye,
Do you feel beautiful?

When you wrench the ivory from a dying rhino,
Do you feel homely?

When you dispatch a lion from a kilometre away,
Do you feel like a man?

When you destroy the world,
When you choke the life from her,
Does it make you feel human?
Because it should.
