By Josie Whitehead
A challenge, facing all our world,
Is in our hands today
Climatic changes are the signs -
Our planet’s heating up at speed:
This problem must be faced –
And much that’s at the root of this
Is caused by human waste.
Greenhouse gases, caused by waste,
Are sent up through the air.
It’s not just things that we chuck out
But vehicles – beware!!
Our seas and rivers, full of pain,
Cry out, in deep despair.
The creatures living in their world
Are dying. Is this fair?
Young people – you’ll be suffering
In years that lie ahead,
So, when you buy the things you use,
Remember what I’ve said.
