Considering the time they spend at the Starbucks.
A forest is something most foreign to many
Camping and hiking, they do hardly any.
And the notion that tree herders chop with great haste
and destroy without care, laying great woods to waste
is belied by the fact, that they clear and replant
A capitalist knows how silly the Lorax's rant
But lo, should the 'many' find conscience and true good
let them set down their laptops, and go live in the woods.
There they can clothe themselves in moss and dry leaves
they can eat themselves berries, get the runs and dry heaves
Let them live in the wild on yon side of the hill...
oh how we'll miss them...we'll miss them...we will!
Rather than the issue they attack the messenger most vigorous,
While zealots on the environment exist to some degree,
No one should ever celebrate their demise with glee,
While some would advocate little or no use of environment at all,
These are a very slim minority in the call,
Most would say fair use should be the rule of the day,
So that we can continue to play,
But alas this is not the way of those with power have acted,
To them nature is but a resource to be extracted.
Like I said, I heard in a movie that greed was good.
No, you mistake the drive to do well with greed. they are actually two different things. Greed, where you need it so badly you're willing to harm others, is bad. Period. Not even conservatives, real conservatives, promote greed.
I'm sorry that you, and MPG it appears, don't understand the difference between the two.
many conservatives do more than bleat hype.
To us the wilderness is lush and greenery
and not merely the backdrop to your video game scenery
When it comes to experiencing nature's enjoyment
We do it in person, not from our moms basement.
As to the 'capitalists' cutting down trees
surely you know they replant them you see?
And tho you bemoan where business ventures have trod
surely you realize it takes natural resources to make your iPod?
Responsible management of nature is a must
for those of us who dont spend our lives swilling red bull and covered in cheeto dust.
There is a line where business goes too far, and both conservatives and liberals should agree that there is a line, and work toward agreement on where that line is.
