Emerald fingers are forcing their way through the soil
But the grass seems made out of foil
With flecks of colors in between
The second look shows: Nothing’s clean

The sea is shimmering in the sun
Swimming in plastic water is no fun
Fish are dying because of our laziness
Throwing the trash away in absentmindedness

Our earth’s beauty is dying
And we’re not even trying
What can we do, we don’t care
With all due respect, we should be aware

Birds happily chirping in the tree
Still they don’t know about their upcoming flee
The sun’s rays are warming up
We can’t do anything to make the fire stop

Smoke in the air
Litter everywhere
We’re the earth’s biggest nightmare
How is that even fair?
