Pollution

By 5th February 2013December 9th, 2019No Comments

The air in summer makes me sneeze
From pollen floating on the breeze.
In winter I am sneezing still
As air borne germs give me a chill.
So as you see I do not care
For what is carried on the air,
Made worse by men who are such fools
For burning up their fossil fuels,
And whilst pollution can’t be seen
We know its colour isn’t green.
We’re poisoning our atmosphere
To cause a warming everywhere
With changing weather, melting ice
And deeper seas; it isn’t nice
To think that what is in the air
Is killing off the polar bear.
The climate has gone out of sync
But I’m not kicking up a stink
Because extremes, from floods to freezing,
Could kill off the germs and the pollen and stop me sneezing!
