Unto you as unto me

a to z challenge

For the world that I breathe poison into

does the same to me

the skies spit on to me

the dirt I blew

the waters that flow

carry to me the waste I dump

the leaves sing the song

I taught them to sing

the earth cries

every time I weep

she bears the most the pain I give

the birds, the beasts

still magnanimous

stop to dance

even in the face of my anger

sometimes the ocean

grumbles and groans

and in a fit of anger

expunges earth

with her fluid emotions.

The man I hugged

helps me with a smile

the men I punched

return it with a vengeance.

Unto me as unto you.

Let’s leave the Jarawas in peace!
