Sun spills softly onto soil cold and stark
Green has gone from here – left the landscape in the dark
Rain it brings no hope, no sustenance to see
Who on earth’s to blame – is it you?
Is it me?
The rays grow ever stronger as protective layers go
They said it might be fast, might be slow, well
do they know?
The minute hand ticks on and the hours and days they pass
One thing is for sure
things like this they cannot last.
As earth it crumbles inwards and dissolves upon us all
there are some who fight right back and who will never let it fall
their solar panels shine and their hearts are just as gold
they refuse to let their planet turn to rot – turn to mould.
They stand up for what is right and they help the ones in plight
be it animal or human, neither one of them they slight
They’re prepared to make things better even though it seems so hard
Won’t you join them in their mission – won’t you help to be a guard.
Today’s offering for Day 22 of , prompt being something tied in with Earth Day 2013.
