I ravaged the land, cut down all the trees
No more Truffulas blowing in the breeze
The swammy swans left the pond that grew foul
Pollution warnings went out – I’d just scowl
They call me “Onceler,” I know how things were
Should the Lorax warn again, I’d concur
Hey there, young boy, catch this Truffula seed
It’s the last one left because of my greed
The days of hacking axes are gone now
All that remain are furrows in my brow
It’s now up to you, boy, grow a forest
And pray our environment will be blessed
The Lorax is watching; what will you do?
One day you’ll take pride in the trees that you grew
Perhaps you’ll lure back the poor swammy swans
For progress, you see, has its pros and cons
*Based on “The Lorax” by Dr. Seuss, a story about man's threat to the environment.
