    Tomato plant
    String beans
    Green pepper
    Sample of my little garden
    On my window sill

    The soil that was once
    Outside my door
    Is now covered with cement
    They say they cover the soil
    For human advancement

    I water my little garden
    on my window sill
    With filter water from my faucet.
    Because the water that now
    comes from my faucet
    is predicted to be poison
    they say they dump
    the factory chemical in the water
    for human advancement

    I use to drink rain water
    I would catch it in a pail
    Now I dare not take a sip
    It is mix with pollution acid
    They say the smog is a much
    It is for human advancement

    The earth cover in cement
    The rain water poison
    A garden in the house
    Resting on my window sill
    Will one day fade
    As they say things are as they are
    For the advancement of human

    I don’t see it that way.
    As they make advancement
    For the human race
    It is slowly killing us
    Day by day
    As I water my little garden
    With filter water
    That sets on my window sill.
