By Not Being Kind To Our Planet - Poem by Francis Duggan

With dams, creek and lakes quickly drying out water birds are becoming quite rare
Climate change it is so hard on wildlife and weather extremes experienced everywhere
Climate experts they paint a bleak picture tough times for all of life forms ahead
And that of course does include humans when famines could leave millions dead
By not being kind to our Planet to ourselves we too have been cruel
We pollute the air, land and water and we burn too much fossil fuel
For being disrespectful to Mother Nature we will have a huge price to pay
In the World great changes are happening we learn from life in the hard way
A shortage of clean drinking water can give rise to fatal disease
The waterways heavily polluted and pollution is blowing in the breeze
We do believe we rule the World that the World's resources to us do belong
But we do delude ourselves only and in our thinking we have it wrong
The waterways are quickly drying out and water birds becoming rare
And global warming for us could well spell disaster the signs of it are everywhere
