The World We Created Poem by Theo Williams

The World We Created

Rating: 4.9

Broken bottles everywhere with plastic bags
Charred pieces of glass with boxes and fags
Ripping out plants and tearing down trees.
Is this the beautiful environment surrounding me?

Plastic in the sea choking biodiversity with terror
Oil suffocating organisms due to human error
Waste disposed in the once beautiful ocean.
Are these all acts of our human notion?

The slaughter of animals for food source and recreation
Destroying the GBR is an act of human exploitation
Chemical acidification, decreasing the sea's level of pH.
By our actions, are we not changing the environments fate?

Factories expelling yellow fumes and pollutants
Vehicle emitted gases, and plants; incongruent
Weapons of destruction, we test in vanity.
Is this what's become of our humanity?

Protesting to the government and politics
To alter our ways to good from horrific
Because if we don't heed this problem at hand
All this pollution will be the destruction of man.
