our world; our responsibility; everyone impacts
Earth loves and nurtures
provides all we need.
we take and take
and never put back.
rip Her open and
tear out Her resources.
fill in wetlands
cut down trees
make plastic to sit
forever in man-made landfills.
a disposable society
of luxury and convenience.
we’re throwing away
our Mother Earth.
This is for the open link for Real Toads and d’Verse Poets.
Smokestacks belching putrid nuclear smoke.
City lights escape to the once dark endless sky
Revealing the pollution and junk floating in space.
Water ripples with each new tire or beer can tossed in.
The sun is blocked with the black air from car exhaust.
Politicians will clean it up when elephants fly,
so I guess it’s up to you and me.
