Vintage Carlin

Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies,
insecticided grain,
for strip-mined mountain's majesty,
above the asphalt plain.
America, America,
man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs,
from sea to oily sea. ...

George Carlin, c. dawn of time

Been a dog's age since I heard that little ditty. As poignant now as it was when he first recorded it.
Will we ever learn?
