When all of nature weeps

Tears too late to regenerate
and all because we acted too late
Future generations will face decline
If we continue to be ignorant to every sign

Ozone has odour like chlorine bleach
It’s now to stop now to teach
For exposure produces headaches, burning eyes
irritated respiratory passages, asthmatic sighs

All of nature in decline
Don’t waste water treat it like wine
Be careful that you sort your rubbish
Recycle everything we publish

What you buy is important too
As is how much liquid flushes down the loo
Then the factories where the ‘stuffs’ produced
need reduce the smog that they’ve induced

Stop pollution at its source
And where possible walk of course
Or otherwise lets travel together
Protect our plants, trees and our weather

    Good write! I hate waste with a passion. It’s a shame that so many people have got a “I’ll be dead by then, so who cares?” mentality.

  • Appreciate your viewing and commenting! Now don’t get me started! lol. I worry for my family for the next few generations – I don’t want them to suffer as it sounds may be, we need strike that balance now! ;D Thankyou for stopping by, have a great weekend, Anna-Marie.
