Where Did the Coyotes Go

Moon Song, Sketch by jsburl

The Voice of Our Planet

In honor of and tribute to Greta Thunberg
Our planet cries "Help me, I die a slow death
  my heart is the air that all creatures must breathe
  my lungs are the forests cut down by mankin
  my stomach the ocean a slow dying space
  my body the earth and the changes it makes
  my head is mankind for the good or the bad
  my enemy pollution of chemical kinds
  my pets are all creatures that fight for their lives

I remember the last huge drastic die off
  the planet survived but only a few
  of all creatures survived that horrific event
  caused by the many volcanic eruptions
  debris in the air blocking sun from the earth
  as I watch global warming making more clouds
  as it makes glaciers melt and waters to rise
  but I hear Greta Thunberg appealing for help

She talks of her young people friends of her age
  16 year old's worrying about what they face
  as they grow watching changes that threaten their world
  and maybe there won't be a livable earth
  100 more years from today 
I pray that help isn't too little too late"

Before Plastic Bags

    Think 1950’s—Before Plastic Bags
There were cans of all sizes and shapes
Metal ones didn’t make trees get cut down

But plastic makes sturdy buckets that crack
     Brittle that needs to be thrown away
     And bags clogging oceans, killing ocean life
     Clogging and littering lands and waters

A pervasive habit almost impossible to break
     Thankfully replaced by recycled paper
