Cleaning up at Home

It's true we've past the grief around
and down the years as well,
from the first two put underground
a never ending swell.
 
There is no myth or mystery
nor any favourites,
for, throughout our history,
we are groomed out just like nits.
 
It seems to me we are viewed as lice
infesting a planet,
but for all to be groomed out, now, that ain't nice,
I'm on the list! Damn it...
 
I can hear the nit-nurse curse
bustling round with her comb,
no grim-reaper just mother Earth
cleaning up at home...
