Pollution Rap

Fri 10th Feb 2017




























Here's a map
Stick a pin in it.
Here's a car
Take a spin in it.
While we're driving
We're depriving the air of pure.
People breathing that air impure.

Here's a map
Stick a pin in it.
Here's a plane
Take a spin in it.
While we're flying
Folks are dying in air impure.
People dead from air impure.

Here's a map
Stick a pin in it.
Here's the sea
Take a swim in it.
Watch your splashing
Folks are trashing that ocean pure.
Planet's dying in seas impure.

The creatures of the deep
Choke on plastic while we sleep,
Sleep-walking through the pollution.
Particulates so small
You can't see them at all.
So what in the world's the solution.
What's the solution?

Though we love acquiring things
From latest phones to diamond rings,
Too soon they demand that we dispose 'em all.
Replacing old with new
When there's little reason to,
It's a marketing ploy, so let's expose 'em all.
Let's expose 'em all.

Here's a map
Mark a chalk on it.
Here's your street
Take a walk on it.
While you're pacing
Try facing your local reality.
Try wearing another mentality.

The winds of change
Cannot be chained,
Nor border wall arrest 'em.
Think Global, Act Local,
Unite, don't fight,
Together we'll assess 'em.
We'll outwit the rest and best 'em.
Don't hate again or bait again...
Make Our One-World Great Again!
