Lynn Jacobs – Not So Long Ago
A million years or so ago
Up until not so long ago
We lived in our natural habitat
Like any other animal
Where we evolved to belong
Our food plants lived there with us
We didn’t need clothing
Or constructed shelters
We made comfortable nests of soft materials
Under trees and the open sky

Maybe we inhabited only a small portion of the planet
Maybe we were comparatively few in number
Maybe we possessed only what we needed
Maybe we did only what came natural
Maybe we felt more alive

Lynn Jacobs
Feb.-Mar. 2000 Earth First!
