Trees And No People

Smell the autumn mist
and the pollution
remember when there were trees and no people?
Trees and no people
See the orange funghi
reaching for a distant sun
looking down on the earth from heaven
looking down from heaven

Do you see the broken trees
on this wintered field?
Their crown holds
the earth like God's hand
the birds are suffering
the magpies are lost
but nobody cares
but nobody cares
