STOCKI'S AFRICAN MUSIC PLAYLIST
FEEL THE SILENCE

HERE COME THE KILLERS OF EARTH (MURCHISON FALLS NATIONAL PARK)

Murchison Oil Road

(A rather rushed poem of anger... watching bulldozers cut roads into Murchison Falls National Park... we still reach for tempting forbidden fruit... and still end up damaging our humanity... and the garden)

 

No animals at the gate

They all have run for cover

Sensitive to the dangers

That we have made our lover

Bulldozing elephants off the savannah

Ripping giraffes from silhouette horizons

Tearing the coloured birds from sky

And extinguishing the lions

 

Power lines

Industrial enzymes

Stocks and share crimes

Beauty thieving

Reach for progress

We all become less

That is our fallenness

Wonder grieving

 

Dashing Mother Nature's dance

Crashing God's Creation jive

Here come the killers of earth

And we are watching it live!
