It is high time we save our planet,
Our life giving, life sustaining planet,
Our beneficent mother earth from whose womb we came,
And who will our lives ultimately claim.
We have witnessed disasters unseen,
Calamities so unforeseen,
Lost so many near and dear human beings.
Brace up now, oh ye the Lord’s image, ye human beings!
Save our planet from factors such as temperature, radiation,
Climate, chemistry and geology which need consideration.
For, due to environmental issues, the climate is changing rapidly,
Smog and acid rains are becoming frequent jeopardy,
With flood, famine, drought, landslides hitting calamitously.
We are precariously polluting the air, water and noise poisonous,
With industries discharging their untreated waste hazardous
Into the water bodies, on soil, and in air alarmingly.
And the greenhouse gasses increase the temperature considerably,
With further pollution by our vehicle and factories, catastrophically.
Why not resort to electric vehicles or those powered by solar energy,
With sustainable wind energy, which are all environment friendly?
And why not conserve more natural habitats with promptitude,
Manage those that already exist, increase production of food
On cleared land, to minimize mineral exhaustion and increase fuel wood?
Furthermore, to maintain the balance of the ecosystem, reforestation
Will boost the natural cycles and help in groundwater restoration.
If we ‘Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle’ we shall ameliorate the situation.
Indeed! It is time to heed the calamitous situation,
Otherwise, doom will embrace us, with much ruination!
