First, came the buzz of the meadow,
Now, there is a lifeless, endless road.

First, came the forest full of treasures,
Now, there are towering, concrete flats.

First, came the swoosh of the pristine ocean,
Now, there is crunching plastic everywhere.

First, came the iceberg, standing tall and strong,
Now, there are rising sea levels and creatures without a home.

First, came the beautiful, blue planet,
Now, there is a mess and nobody wants to tidy it up!
