In the air we breathe
The greenhouse is in effect
Smoke and smog swirls
Choking, gagging and sick
People hole themselves inside
The air and trees struggle to survive.
Factories, pollution, ecosystem madness
Children and pets no longer play
Stagnant water, shelters in ruins
People dying by the thousands
Dying land and water no one cares
Melting from the sun’s menacing glare.
Global warming, starting a new trend
Atmosphere wrecked a cross to bare
We live day to day
In a horrible co-existence
Our planet around us dies
Politicians have all lied.
Animals die in our waterways
Trash and garbage unite the innocent
Acid rain chews the coastlines
Pollution on the rise
Carelessly dumping waste into ponds and rivers
Our lives go out without shiver.
Our shorelines erode beyond all control
Oil spills and uncharted ships sink
Making life impossible for air
We understand nothing about life
Call of the wind absolute and gone
Help right all the wrongs.
Fish and mammals live and die to breathe
Air constitutes no purity
We lose all authority around us
Trees and birds quickly perish
Can we see the horrid end?
Into extinction we send.
