When the word was made, There was nothing. One thing was made, then another. The had many sisters and brothers. Over time, they grew, Into me and you. We survived off the water, from which we were born, Until the 7 deadly storms. They killed the ones who didn't survive, and left the survivors still alive. Now we are here, me, and you Turning the world back to nothing.
Pollution is ruining the world's oceans and making species go extinct. We need to lend a hand in protecting the environment.
When I was but a child To litter seemed a scandelous crime As we were taking a walk one day I vowed That I’d bring My plastic grabby tool out And clean it all up ... We got home Milk and cookies Was all it to took For me to forget ... A couple of years later I saw a piece of plastic in our yard I picked it up Brought it home And disposed of it Feeling great about myself ... The year after my brother happened to have a park cleanup At his school I had time So I thought, Why not? I came along Used funky tools Counted each piece I picked up Feeling good about myself Then I went home To eat some cookies ... The next time I saw a piece of trash, I acknowledged there wasn’t anything much I would do about it ... After that I stopped noticing all together
They instill the knowledge in kids That littering is bad But just words Are words Until we put in a team effort Rather than acknowledging others will do it for us Or that it’s too hopeless Nothing will ever get done
