Etheree poem about progress.
no matter
who owns it now
the trees are falling
lopped off by huge machines
(steel has no fondness for life)
wipe out the great lush green jungle
to put in a road and a pipeline
communities are killed by greedy men

his Intro Rating change was made for the following general reason:
Title Content Is Not 'E' Rated.
Item titles, brief descriptions and cover images are publicly visible and thus their content must be correctly rated. Only two choices are available for these public areas: E and Non-E. This is because all users, of any age, can see item titles and brief descriptions that are 'E' rated clearly in Writing.Com public listing pages. This rating is separate from the item's overall content rating.
In addition, the following brief explanation is included:
The word 'kill' is not E rated. Thanks.
