Rachel Carson Would Say...

Once the skies were gray to black
The rivers burst in flames;
Water, poisoned, killed the fish
And sickened all who drank;
Breathing gases and exhaust,
People coughed and died.

War against nature is war against ourselves.

"Stop," they cried; "Enough," they called;
And expectations changed;
Plumes decreased and runoff cleaned,
Exhaust diminished and balance regained;
Skies shone blue and water flowed clear,
Health for all, two feet and four,
But wait: memory failed and greed regaled,
Pollution again spews free.

War against nature is war against ourselves.

Skies now blue will soon turn dark
And breath will turn to cough;
Water clear for heath held dear
Will fill with harm to all;
Stand up and call, "Enough you fools!
We expect our rights ring true."


Because- War against nature is war against ourselves.
