A Poem About Clean Air

Keep It Fresh

Fresh air is so important,

It keeps our lungs quite clean.

So why so much pollution?

It isn’t very green.

Lungs are dark in cities,

Muddied by constant smog.

Car engines always stalling,

No place to walk a dog.

Animals matter too, you know,

Pollution makes them sick.

We need to start to change things,

And make the changes stick.

So walk a little more, my friend,

Or catch a train or bus.

Keep the car for distances,

Try cycling, it’s less fuss.

Politicians needs to learn

That coal and gas are bad.

We all know there are better sources,

Let’s use them and be glad.

I suppose it’s easy to forget

That pollution is around.

It doesn’t sing, it doesn’t dance,

And poisons without a sound.

I dream a dream of futures,

When renewables rule the day.

Solar, wind and thermal

Have chased fossil fuels away.
