Dear Earth, my Earth
You've been so good to me
Much better than I've been to you
Much better than I've been to myself
Even when I trash and mistreat you
You find it in your heart to keep me alive
You give and give and give
While I just take and take
I know you are strong and may have been built to last
But you too can only take so much abuse
Everybody and everything needs a little love
And that includes you
In observance of your special day
I am going to vow to treat you better
I will remember the Biblical charge to
"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you"
I am going to be the best darn Earthling that I can be
Even as a New Yorker and cosmopolitan elite
You deserve better and the truth of the matter is
If I don't do something quick...
That may be it
And for me
So dear Earth, my Earth...
Let's fall in love
