La Casa Bonita
Juily Vasandani, Grade 10, St Mary's Anglican Girls School
Too long the Earth has been festering,
Absorbing our abuse and our negligence,
Slowly our homes are sinking,
We have misused our God-given intelligence.
All the rivers have been poisoned,
Soon the Earth will be gone,
All the forests have been burned,
Yet nothing has been done.
When the last fish has been taken from the ocean,
The last free bird shot,
When the Earth finally stops its motion,
The human race will start to rot.
The world is dying,
What can we do?
I am trying,
You should too.
