Earth Day
by Hillol Ray
Bookmark and Share
  We are all puppets to cheer on this Earth,
While joy and sorrow always come since our birth
Daylights follow dusk towards the gloomy nights,
And bring us such a joy to renew our sights
Fresh air and clean water nourish our souls,
Without them, we suffer, and pay the heavy tolls

To put a stop to these tolls, EPA was formed
Over two decades ago, and brains were stormed
For protection of nature, EPA took the vow
To offer simple tips, let me tell 'em now
Banning pesticides and lead in gasoline
Made the giant move to make the nature clean
Recycling became a daily household chore
To reduce costs and protect the seashore
Reduction of emissions created the flow
Of cleaner air, and polluters took a blow
Dumping of sewage into lakes and streams
Was banned to prevent leery public screams
Pollution of water became a salient issue
To protect human health and aquatic tissue

The situation has changed over twenty-five years,
And laws are in place to remove our fears
Now an annual event hangs around us
To recognize Earth Day without any fuss
So let's all sing Save the Earth songs,
And do things right to hear loud gongs

Now, always think "Earth Is In Your Hands",
Here at home or in foreign lands
So let us follow these few simple roles,
To avoid the agonies of all future souls
Conserve the water as much as you can,
While you are bathing or washing the van
Recycle and prevent pollution at the source,
While care should be motive and the hidden force
Plant the trees in open private space,
To create the shade and cool your face
Try the carpool with a friend, or share a ride -
To control the air and emission ebb tide

Dispose off pesticides in a real safe manner,
And label before you bury 'em under a banner
Organize all efforts to discard the waste,
EPA may be called to quench any quest
Invite friends to attend the Earth Day Acts,
And define each role to convey all facts

Reward the guys for a job well done
To share the benefits and all the fun

Well, now you really know what you have to do -
And celebrate "Earth Day" without further woo.
