~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Your sickened heart
beats timidly.
Your children have
almost murdered you.
Through deceit, greed or ignorance
We, your offspring
have failed you.

High in Los Apus
your heart beats on,
weak but proud, where
your most dedicated children
try to save you, or
exploit you.

Don't abort us yet!
We are lost,
we love you, but
we have been led astray.
Temptation, hunger, solitude
have clouded our vision,
our piety.

Before you take back
all you have given us,
give us one more chance.
Please, Pacha Mama.
