De Natuur spreekt: The Soil/De Grond

Edward Norton spreekt:

I am the Soil
I am in the hills and in the valleys
The farms, the orchards
Without me, humans could not exist
But you treat me like dirt
Do you realize that I am just a thin skin on this planet?
And that I’m actually alive
Full of organisms that grow your food
But I am broken, aching, overused, sick
Because of you
You have withered me away
To less than half of what I used to be just over one hundred years ago
Are you paying attention?
I am turning
To dust
So maybe you could treat me with a little more respect
I suppose you still want to eat?
