Going Green - Poem by Inro Lavil

Going Green

by Inro Lavil

The world's at the edge of annihiliation
With the death of our races in near completion
Many fell into panic, start to have delusions
Searching for endless and elusive solutions

Everyone may help, everyone's involved
To this century-old problem unsolved
They say, our minds and traits evolve
Together with planets and moons that revolve

We are guilty, responsible for our shortcomings
Still on us depends on how we make endings
Darkness we've wanted are now rising
What can we do to resolve this thing?

Stop cutting down trees, we now know that
Stop burning fields that must be a plot
Numerous people had died, you do the math
The only thing to do is to put on a dot

Stop using plastic and nonbiodegradables
Stop using CFC's that are interminable
We could do save earth even if impossible
But don't be proud of shorter caps in your bottles

For groceries, use paper bags
For fresh fruits, use paper bags
For fresh fish, use paper bags
For the purified water, use paper bags

For the case of cellphone, use paper
For the spaceships and cars, use paper
For the houses and heights, use paper
For the fillings of Siopao, use paper (make it grounded with your favorite sauce)

To minimize consumption of fatty meats
Try fried paper to minimize cholesterol you eat
Forget all the rice, grains, and whole wheat
This may be our future, surpassing a myth

Going green, going green, what does this mean?
Simply, maybe, it does mean, be clean
Eat foods that will make you so sexy and lean
It's not putting in your mind something obscene

Humans are really very hedonistic beings
Wasting and using resources while sinning
Now, that the world is in its near ending
Remember these two words: Go Green!

Being Hulk is nice but do not use green enamel paint for your costume.
