Environmental Pollution


Environmental pollution
Is a collision of masses of waste particles
That requires an immediate solution

My heart saddens when I realise
There will come a time when all rainforests
Will turn to barren stretched marked lands
When rivers will be invaded by all weather pests

I wish we could plant a tree next door
Control the toxic waste released into our waters
Control the toxic waste released into our atmosphere
I despair and fear because I care
About what we breathe in from the air

Help! environmental pollution
Technological advancement has its negative sides
Smoke, smog & waste is mixing with carbon dioxide

Everyday toxic chemicals we are releasing
And fresh water reserves are decreasing

So help, help
Help find a solution
To Environmental Pollution

The air we consume
Is polluted with all kinds of fumes
If we continue like this
We shall be doomed
We shall be doomed!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
