Only after the last tree has been cut down.
Only after the last river has been poisoned.
Only after the last fish has been caught.
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten.

And so did ants....

The burying beetle tried to bury the fish, but finally he gave up.I think the soil was too hard and dry to dig.
