And we did

And we did dominate nature and with our machines and mud and we did cover the trees with 

concrete yes and we did fill the air with unbreathable fumes yes we were selfish and we 

burned all the coal and the oil and we set fire to the fossil fuel to propel our progress and yes 

we made metal fly and tanks kill and we did pull all the fish from the sea and fill the water 

with plastic yes and we watched the snow vanishing more each year and loved the sun in 

January and yes we had cancer and yes we poisoned ourselves and the electric flowed into 

our machines and made more machines that used electric which was pushed in to the 

machines with long dead animals and we burned it to make weapons to kill each other and 

make money by selling more weapons and yes we did fly around the globe watching 

creatures die and floods and hurricanes and chopping down trees and yes we made money 

and we moved money about yes the rich had the money and they moved it to the rich and yes 

the poor had none and less than that and we were selfish and we should have known better 

and yes we didn’t in the end know better than the soup that we came from
