I ask, “Is the earth alone?”
Don’t you have to go to the earthworm,
busy making earth fertile, and ask before taking any important decision!
Who knows if the ants are more concerned about the earths future than you.
I am worth an earthworm.
For you I am only an ant to be crushed.
My human rights puny before your demon rights.
I may be insignificant come on.
Yet my claim over the earth is no way less than yours.
