Wake Up!

Today the sky is filled with birds,
Tomorrow not a one is heard.
The oceans which once teemed with life,
Now filled with plastic and oil, running rife.
When the last fish is caught, the last bird is shot, the last tree is cut, will they notice then? When there's no clean water left for them? When there's no food to feed their kin? Only then will they notice, and by then, it will be too late.

Author's Note
I left this poem as a comment on one of AndyJHale's poems, and he encouraged me to post it, so here it is! Check out this poem's unintentional inspiration here:

Other inspirations include my own pains about what humans are doing to our fragile planet. Oh, and Michael Jackson's, "Earth Song"!
