The world we’ve made

1 Comment

Badlands National Park

. . . the world we’ve made
scares the hell out of me.
There’s still a little bit of heaven in there
and I wanna show it due respect.
This looks like a good spot up here.
You can try me on the cell,
but most places I wanna be
it doesn’t work.
Sometimes you got to listen hard
to the sounds old Mother Earth still makes
— all on her own.

Greg Brown, from “Eugene”

One thought on “The world we’ve made

  1. ah ha. there is the lesson of change in mother nature, but the lesson of change made by man is scarier than hell.
