Do you know what pollution means?
Its making your home dirty
You may say we keep our home clean,
But I don’t really think so.
See, by home I mean planet Earth
And now its incredibly dirty
I mean the ocean is full of plastic
The number of pieces of plastic there is really drastic
We have time to clean up,
But scientists predict
That in the next 10-100 years
All the known animals will be extinct
See it is up to us, all of us…
To fight pollution
In an ecological revolution
We have to act fast
Or our whole planet will look like an
Area after a nuclear blast.
