WDYS # 162 -A Roundup post

He found himself in a dark room

The only source of light, a flashing sign

You have been warned, it stated threateningly

A warning, he trembled at the ominous warning

He failed in his mission, he realized with dread

The responsibilities entrusted to him remain unfulfilled

Their home, the earth was still in a battle of division

The environment polluted, temperatures raising

He fell to his knees, asked for another chance

At that moment he woke up soaked in sweat

Today he will start working on his election promises

Today he will start to heed the warning

    1. I think it’s the duty of people living on this planet to fix it because after all we are the ones trying to ruin its environment. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼


  1. It is often difficult to be diligent when there are so many products that are allowed to be produced that discourage recycling or second use… like those individual coffee/tea pods.

    At least some company came up with refillable pods. But some people just don’t want to bother…

    I do like the park benches that are made out of recycled tires or plastic bottles 😀

      1. Used coffee grounds can be good for some plants… but not too much. I actually read about a gal who had her family help her save onion skins (maybe other veg too) and dyed a white sweater from a thrift store to a nice pale yellow. 🙂
