Water Is Life - Poem by Michael Nabert

Without drinking water no one can live
water security is the best gift anyone can give
Wasting our water
harms every son and daughter
because that water is life


Acidifying oceans makes species die
6 million more bits of plastic
every time 5 days go by
roughly 90%
of the big fish are absent
but our oceans are life


It's not nice when corporations set the price
water grows the world's crops
We must think about the water that we drink
before it stops


We can use it much more sustainably
and preserving it is clearly good for you and good for me
no more pipelines needed
water protectors be heeded
protect the water of life
of life
of life

Topic(s) of this poem: anthem, life, pollution, song, water
