Why Nature Can only Tame Nature

Humans have walked on the Moon's surface and sent spaceships to Mars
And humans have probed for life in Worlds beyond the Stars
But despite our Human achievements and our great lust for fame
The great force of Nature we never will tame
The fires in Victoria Humans cannot put out
They burn through the scrublands that are ravaged by drought
Leaving death and destruction and woe and heartbreak
And grieving survivors in their blackened wake
The fires that will only be put out by rain
Why Nature can only tame Nature is beyond me to explain
Of Nature and her ways so little we know
And yet our wonder of her only does seem to grow
And if the fires in Victoria they cannot put out
The greatness of Human-kind one has to doubt.
