It's poetry day and our rhyme's being spent
Talking about the environment
We use things and throw them away
We're destroying the world, that's not okay.
If we could recycle, reuse, reduce
We could stop this planet running out of juice
It will get too hot and way too cold
It could stop our children getting old.
Our thinking is we need more stuff
sometimes we have more than enough
If you don't know where to begin
start putting your rubbish in the right bin.
Maybe you could cut down your waste
instead of getting rid as a matter of haste
With our lifestyle choices we're killing the air
but we carry on like we just don't care.
Our planet's dying, it's hitting the skids.
We have to save it for our kids.
That's why this poetry day's being spent
rhyming about the environment.
