Nature, censored

I'm leaving to spend the weekend with nature -
but nature will be surely filtered.
I'll eat from a blue boxy cooler and drink from plastic and glass.
I will sleep sheltered and roast by the light of kerosene.

It was so long ago that my ancestors killed and cooked and ate,
by wood and stream and fire. How much softer I am than they were.
