What Have We Done To The Earth? - Poem by Adelaide Rhead

What have we done to the earth?
What have we done to the sea?
We are killing the planet of our birth,
Oh, can't you see, can't you see?

What have we done to the air?
The acid rain falling on the land,
There's pollution, pollution everywhere,
Oh, why can't you understand?

The animals and all that fly,
The forests and all upon the land
The fish and all that live in the sea,
Are we all doomed to die through man?

But when we learn to respect and love all,
Then we will know our true worth,
And the dream of peace that we all have,
Will come to our planet Earth.

    Climate change is answering your heart felt questions. The polar Vortex is assaulting us again with a vengeance and bursting underground water pipes and affecting the economy of the USA. Man is suffering and paying. You point out important issues. Thank you (Report) Reply
