TIME'S RUNNING OUT.

A friendly layer of ozone, guards earth from harmful rays.

We damage and abuse this friend, In oh!, so many ways.

Would you give a thirsty friend, a glass of poisoned wine.

I fear that's what we sometimes do, by default, if not design.

Now we must stop the defaulters, and improve our plant design.

Thus better our environment, or slow down it's decline.

We pollute the air with C F Cs, our smoke is carried on the breeze,

Then in some far land descends again, as plant destroying Acid Rain.

We think about rain water, as something, pure and clean.

Alas, today that's not the case, as once it might have been.

The Western World, must now reduce, by the use of stricter codes,

The smoke produced by factories, and transport on our roads.

With lakes and ponds polluted, with poisons from the rain,

Degraded by dead plants and fish, no signs of life remain.

With forest decimation, our climate soon will change,

World wide co-operation we must urgently arrange.

The chain-saws must be silenced, rain forests must be saved,

Never more dare we return, to the way we once behaved.

Every day throughout the world, our forests are erased.

Precious timber is consumed, without being replaced.

The products for which the wood is used, are mainly thrown away.

When they could be re-cycled, for use another day.

We're told, that it's not done,  because the cost's too high.

If waste persists, it may cost "The Earth", and much of life will die.

The starving millions must be helped, not just with wheat and rice,

But by teaching farming methods, and with technical advice.

It's taken us some time to learn, think of the straw we used to burn.

A practice which did so much harm, To insect life upon the farm.

I HOPE THIS MAKES YOU STOP AND THINK

DONíT WAIT TOO LONG, WE'RE ON THE BRINK.
