Environmental Degradation and Diseasters

Environmental degradation
Environmental disasters
Liter the earth with fabrics of cans and waste
On land and sea
Terrestrial creatures destroyed
Aquatic lives annihilate.

Burn the bushes
Animals flee
Animals die
Microorganisms disappeared
Soil properties loss.

Cut the trees
Degradation occurred
Terrestrial creatures expose to danger
Aquatic lives
Face hazards
The works of humans' greediness.

Erosion occurred
Humans die with properties
Animals die without hope
Aquatics die of toxic wastes
Soil properties loss
Earth struggles for survival
All living creatures expose to danger.

All living mammals
Keep the earth clean
Preserve the forest
Save the aquatic lives
Maintain soil properties
Let the sea lives
In this honor
We all survive.
