Hi everyone, I’m sharing another poem with you today, I hope you enjoy it!
‘Save me!’ The earth cries daily,
‘Help me to survive,
So that I may do all I can
To help keep you all alive!’
‘Give me!’ Call the people,
They’re always wanting more –
They’ve fished clean all the oceans
And they’ve piled trash along the shore
‘Feed me!’ Call the people,
For their hunger knows no bounds –
But they’re always dumping chemicals
That kill crops within the ground!
‘Help us!’ The people cry daily,
For they’ve left it far too late –
There’s no clean water to fill glasses
And no food to put on plates!
‘I tried!’ The earth calls ruefully,
‘I warned you, everyone,
That if you were not careful,
Everything good here would be gone!’
As always, thanks for reading, it means a lot!
Until next time,
