To man’s transgressions I won’t remain mute
From hazard wastes to the ways we commute
Ignorance begets actions so crude and brute
Indeed the plight of the globe is more than acute

Our planet will die if we continue to pollute!

Those fighting for nature deserve a salute
We need a resolve that is firm and absolute
Global talks and forums are meek and dilute
Our inaction is the reason they’re not resolute

Our planet will die if we continue to pollute!

This is a fact no man of conscience can ever refute
That the nature of mankind has earned ill repute
Depletion of natural resources a cause for dispute
Progress the only name our brains can compute

Our planet will die if we continue to pollute!

Most are unaware they walk on a destructive route
The dangers we pose one can undeniably attribute
To the ignorance of factors that greatly contribute
To global pollution through the wastes we distribute

Our planet will die if we continue to pollute!

Thou this tune sound like that of a broken flute
The greedy values we have come to constitute
Has poisoned the directives we blindly institute
Thus driving our world to a place so destitute

Our planet will die if we continue to pollute!
