Our planet is affected every day,
By pollution, smoke and plastic waste.
We should always stop and pick up the litter,
Or else the earth’s result will be bitter.

Whenever we stroll through a park or town,
And we spot plastic laying around,
We should pause and bend to pick it up,
Whether it is a bag, wrapper, or a plastic cup.

Lives are lost every day,
From seals to turtles and even sting rays.
Humans have found animals dying by the shore,
Stuck in nets, bottles and gruesomely more.

Now you know the effects to plastic,
Think about the consequence so it isn’t so drastic.
Remember to always spread the word,
For all the animals who can’t be heard!
