Earth Day - Poem by Joseph Narusiewicz

Today is Earth Day!
Lets preserve our beautiful God given planet?
The radical right doesn’t believe in Global warming,
fights the EPA for clean air and water,
fights scrubbers on smoke stacks,
lets corporations by pass regulations
on environmental controls for rivers and watersheds.
They are trying to de-regulate more and more.
Do you think the free market will preserve the earth?
It is the duty of governments to pass righteous laws
Corporations and the greedy will always pollute
We must regulate, it is only rational
Do we let everyone throw their garbage everywhere?
Do you want our aquifers clean?
Do you want our rivers and lakes polluted?
What about the oceans and sea?
Do you want lead and mercury in our fish?
Do we want all the asthma we have now?
We need land set aside for future generations
We need strict environmental controls
We need chickens that are free range
We need cattle that graze
We need air that is clean
Do you want smog and poison?
Fight them! stand up for Mother Earth and our universe!
We need Green technology!
We are to be tenders of the garden
Not Destroyers!
What kind of world do you want for your children?
