What did you grow for that cut-down tree?

What did you plant for that burnt liter of gasoline?

What did you clean after littering that empty can?

Who did you feed after eating that burger?

What did you build after burning that down?

What did you do in return after taking those hours of your mom cleaning your apartment?

Who did you kiss after beeing kissed?

Whom did you give shelter after taking that house?

What did you re-nature after digging up that copper mine?
