Conspicuous Environmentalist, a poem

Refuse, Reuse, and Recycle please.

Globally scientists agree

Mankind needs to change its mentality

We can reduce carbon emissions,

Delay a penalty on future generations.

Be a “Conspicuous Environmentalist.”

Conservation is an expense we can’t ignore

Humans, animals, nature are priority.

Society can now change and explore

Where to use the shovel to control out fate

Spending money wisely before it’s too late.

Together we join the world

Lower our carbon footprint,

As countries plant forests

Rid one-time use plastics.

Your endowment willed to posterity.

Sovereign nations commit to the earth

Climate change has us above two degrees Celsius

Forest fires, drought, storms and imminent rising seas.

Refuse, Reuse, and Recycle please

Pay now for our world is worth saving.

Plastic is found in all oceans including Mariana Trench

Let’s heed world-wide predictions

Of climate storms, flood, fires, and smoke.

The research is not science fiction

Saving the planet is no joke.
