Ode to Dirt

Ubiquitous, trod upon, unloved, essential, pert,
Our Father who art on Earth is manifest in dirt.
Teeming underneath, alive, vital, surging, alert,
Survival of all life is on Terra Firma gratis dirt.
Toxins, pollutants, contaminating deadly spurt
Renders lifeless life-base dirt.
Decay our vaunted human bodies convert
To compost; humans perforce return to dirt.
Vibrant substance, far from inert,
Our Father who, on Earth, art manifest in dirt.
