Our world only has so many resources. They are limited, yet men abuse them....soon there will be nothing left to abuse...then what?

Warned

©

Published: October 2015

The sands of time have rendered fear
Blue skies on high no longer clear
Stars were bright whence they came
Now dimmed, obscured, pollution's haze

Crystal clear our waters gleamed
Fish abundant, rivers streamed
Ocean floors sandy white
Now littered, brown, pollution's plight

Trees towered high above
Trunks baring professed love
Birds chirping from sites unseen
Gone, paper joined pollution's team

One can't blame pollution alone
As they say, you reap what you've sown
So let us plant a better seed
Tear out old roots, cultivate, weed

Protect what has been given for free
Our waters, skies, wildlife and trees
For once they're gone, don't you say
Consider yourself warned of that fatal day

It's compulsive. I love its rhyme. It gives it biting lyricism. Thank you, Sylvia Stults, for this wonder piece.

This poem really moved me. The issue that this poem covers is an important thing that needs attention and should be taken seriously. I hope everyone reads this and is as moved as me. This is an excellent poem.
