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 odor like chlorine bleach
Its 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

    GReat message, Anna. It all feels so hopeless. I heard China is becoming so industrialized now that in five years, they will outdo the rest of the world so totally for pollution. even the US will look like small potatoes. Very scary stuff. I don't know what will become of us all!!

    Lead the environmental charge, my friend, and you will find me following in your footsteps. I, too, am very concerned about the degredation of nature by mankind. Great work! Love, Carolyn
