Burning Wood

.

Trees, trees blowing in the wind,

We hope you can forgive our sins,

We chopped you down,

That made you frown.

It turned your whole world upside down.

We burnt you to keep us warn,

During the wrath of the winter storm,

Nature needs you more than I,

From a tall giraffe to a little fly,

I know it’s too late but we have to try,

To save you from the destructive side,

Trees, trees, blowing in the wind.

We hope you can forgive our sins,

Sorry that we chopped you down,

Sorry that we made you frown.

Without you our whole world will turn upside down.

Trees, trees, blowing in the wind.

Dear elephant,

.

I love the way you stand mighty and bold,

For all the hunters hunting you for gold,

We are sorry for all the pain we’ve caused

For cutting your tusks for our pride and goals.

To hang them on our walls

And leaving you there hurting

with no one to care.

.

You don’t deserve it anymore,

For the beautiful elephant you are,

Wrong people will treat you bad,

Right people will treat you right.

.

To the bad people that we don’t like

Listen up and do what’s right

To keep these elephants tall and strong

Let them carry on with what they’ve become.

Dear Earth

.

We apologise

For causing you trouble

We’re the bad guys

.

We are destroying you,

Though few of us realise

We never pay attention

When a flower dies

.

We will we could make it up to you

But it’s unforgivable

We really are sorry, it’s true

For making you unliveable

.

We wish we would listen

But we’re too ignorant

All the problems that have risen

We are no longer innocent

.

Dear earth

Please forgive us

It’s bad news for everyone

When you’ll turn to dust.

What a Waterfall Thing

.

What a waterfall thing we’ve been given,

From lakes to oceans that have arisen

From everything wet to everything dry

Hopefully we’ll have an endless supply.

.

Every creature has a right,

To see the living daylight,

Plastic bags and plastic bottles

They will kill and they will throttle.

.

So why do we throw our trash in the sea,

We need to protect, don’t you see!

So let’s stop the commotion that’s going on in the ocean,

So let’s show our devotion by putting a plan into motion.

What a what’re fall thing we’ve been given.

Elephant

.

Why do you make such a fuss

Just over one tusk?

It is only a piece of bone

Worth more than a phone.

 

It’s part of our body

That is worth money.

Earth…

.

You’re a wonderful place,

Even though people pollute you

You’re still part of space.

.

Animals…

Sometimes they’re vicious

But to be fair

They are very delicious.

.

Trees…

You help us breathe

So thank you for you

Otherwise where would we be?
