"How Do We Tell The Children?" (by Joe DiMino)

How do we tell the children?
Look…and remember…
For much of what you see
Will shed its internal light
And be gone—
For we have squandered;

Hear and remember…
The many lovely voices
That will sing no more
For we have squandered;

Breathe and remember…
Before the acrid scent of man
Was willful over God—
For we have squandered;

How do we tell the children?
There will be no Heaven
For the earth we have squandered….
