Ill-Gotten/Ill-Given

I suppose we could plead ignorance
but there is no pleading ignorance

of the law, especially the law of
nature. It has been there from the

beginning and out of our selfish-
ness we just plundered that law

for ill-gotten gain and it certainly
is ill-given because the earth is now

ill, the water is now ill, the sky is
now ill, the animal world is now ill

and we humans are ill unto death
as we continue to plunder the earth

ill-gottenly and ill-givenly and not
treat it at all heavenly.
