Earth Day Poem
By: Hillol Ray
We are all puppets to cheer on this Earth,
To put a stop to these tolls, EPA was formed -
The situation has changed over twenty-five years,
Now, always think "Earth Is In Your Hands",
Here at home or in foreign lands !
So let us follow these few simple roles,
To avoid the agonies of all future souls !
Conserve the water as much as you can,
While you are bathing or washing the van !
Recycle and prevent pollution at the source,
While care should be motive and the hidden force !
Plant the trees in open private space,
To create the shade and cool your face !
Try the carpool with a friend, or share a ride -
To control the air and emission ebb tide !
Dispose off pesticides in a real safe manner,
And label before you bury 'em under a banner !
Organize all efforts to discard the waste,
EPA may be called to quench any quest !
Invite friends to attend the Earth Day Acts,
And define each role to convey all facts !
Reward the guys for a job well done -
To share the benefits and all the fun !
Well, now you really know what you have to do -
And celebrate "Earth Day" without further woo !!!
