Manage or dominate

Matters coming together
too long too much
and too carelessly
we are running along
a descending path

We exhaust everything
without wanting to know
driven greed
is destroying your earth

We do not manage we dominate
subjecting human and animal
to the desire to being
equal to G-d
everything is gasping for air

You are watching us
and you laugh

Isn’t it You
who created
isn’t it You who watches
how humankind
is halting earthly matters

Astonished we observe
the standstill
the ill are gasping for air
the economy as well

Matters coming together
forcing us to see
what we are chasing
without You who created everything
