One Ounce Of Water

One Ounce Of Water

One ounce of clean water
Lost in an endless ocean
The last of a million million gallons
Where are the fish who swam there?
Where are the plants that grew there?
Where is the blue waves?
What happened to them all?
Man emerged from and ancient slime
Grew to be an intelligent being
Rulers of the land and sea
They were so smart
They knew more than nature
They used their planet and wasted all
Now man is dead
The animals of the forest are dead
The life in the ocean all washed up on the shore
Trees last their leafs and died naked
All the life that made Earth a paradise
Gone because of man's ignorance
All that is left of the world man ruined
One ounce of clean water
Lost in an endless ocean
