I am re-posting this poem from December 21, in response to Weekly Prompt – Tree, hosted by Sue W and GC
Trees are the lungs of our planet. They purify the air all animals need to breathe. How shortsighted we are when we take chainsaws to hack at the lungs not realizing that we are going to end up crippled!
The examples of human stupidity are boundless. They are demolishing trees on one hand and polluting the environment by using fossil fuels on the other hand. The air quality is deteriorating all over the world, specially the industrialized countries.
It is a good thing that people are asked to wear masks outside of their homes as the air is not fit for breathing without a mask, specially in big cities in my country. I’ve heard that things aren’t much better in our neighboring countries.
Is there any chance that people will stop destroying the trees and polluting the environment?
