Plant The Heavens - Poem by Harlan Simantel

i will plant the heavens
isaiah quoted our Maker
he is the universe care-taker

aliens on other planets?
seems logical
as explorers discovered
indians on american soil

let's not do like
european settlers
and progeny did
raped the land (still do)
and natives killed
treaties torn up
lives stepped on and 'peeled'

reap what you sow
be mean, do evil
to hell you go
