Where Have All the Flowers Gone: Save the Planet!
by Frederick Douglass Grimes, III
Mother Earth, oh Mother Earth!
Where have you gone?
Mother Earth, Mother Earth!
Where did we go wrong?
Tornadoes, cyclones, twisters and such;
Air pollution, too much plastic…
It’s getting to be a bit much.
Trees being chopped down
Has nature’s animals on the run.
How would anyone like to be run out of their home?
Believe me, it’s no fun.
Plastic islands clogging up the oceans;
Before we know it, no clean water for us to drink.
The closer we get to the sun, the worst things get.
It really makes you think.
Glaciers melting by the minute,
Polar bears looking for a new home.
Soon all of God’s creatures
Will have no place to roam.
Is all we hear nowadays.
If we all pitch in,
Years from now we may still be able to feel the suns rays.
Mother Earth is all we’ve got;
She’s the best game in town.
If folks don’t wake up,
It will be too late for us to frown. 😦
Don’t be a litterbug!
