Polluted Covered Stars
Author: Ben Franklin


Gases released everyday into
our skies,
our irresponsibility causing the oceans to rise.

Not doing something simple like recycling paper,
but knowing full well that we are destroying nature.

Killing animals to keep ourselves warm,
that fur wont help you when we get washed away by
our man-made storm.

Nobody would of dreamt that we could kill
the world with cars,
I never dreamt that my child would look up and only see
polluted covered stars.

Hey B! I never thought of it like that. Astounding perspective you have my dear friend. You know, this poem made me think about my dad, and how he always leaves the lamp on his room. I'm keep having to turn it off. LOL! It won't be long before we have to replace that bulb with another one because those 40 watts don't last forever you know. Hehehe...

LOVE-O-LY poem!
