Live Free Little Mango Seed

about

A few years ago, I fell in with a group of artists who instilled in me a deeper appreciation for nature and the importance of composting, now this attitude colors everything I do...

lyrics

Tonight’s the night little mango seed
You’ve been sitting in my sink 
For the last few days but
Tonight’s the night 

So many of your sisters and brothers
Get tossed out into the darkness of plastic bags
Taken out to dumpsters with garbage 
To pile up and accumulate in seas and landfills 
Where nothing can grow or flourish
But tonight’s the night
I smuggle you out onto the soil
To live or die free among other plants

This is the fighting chance 
We all deserve 
Plants and animals and humans alike 
To grow and blossom 

I do hope you grow
We need more trees... new trees 
Help replace the ones we cut down and consume for paper and chairs and steps 
Yes I know...
It would be great to replant trees in the Amazon 
But I’m not in the Amazon 
I’m here and 
I have this seed
From this mango I ate
Mango and watermelon and guinep and cashew apples and 
That patch of vegetation growing wild and free over there will do just fine

Now
There you go
Even if you don’t grow 
You’ll break down and
Help replenish the earth
This earth that is so much in need of replenishing
