Mother Earth And Father Time Are Angry

Mother Earth and Father Time are walking hand in hand.
They're visiting their children and checking on their land.

They view the worlds destruction everywhere they turn.
They fear their precious children are never going to learn.

''This earth should be their playground with joys beyond belief
yet, all these children seem to know is senseless pain and grief.''

''How do we teach our children to care for such a place?

They may not get the message till we slap them in their face.''

I see kids now doing such damage to their enviroment, very sad, Litter all over the place, they couldn't walk two steps to a waste bin if they tried. I do wonder what schools teach them nowadays.It was drummed into us at school to respect people and things. Nice poem. Sincerely Ernestine.
