Help they cry!
By Tilly – Year 4; Sophie & Cerys – Year 5
Please go plastic free
Cry the animals from the sea
Turtles, seals, whales – all suffering
Wriggling, squirming and rustling
Through the plastic – that’s all our fault
Humans are responsible for this assault!
It’s only now we see their pain
Of an invention we thought we would gain
Straws, bags and so much more ...
Float in our seas, hurting our Earth to its core
Litter-picking our beaches to keep them alive
It is our job to let them thrive!
Now is the time to challenge the world,
Before the future becomes too furled,
Together with small changes our Earth will heal
With our huge heart passion and guilt, we all now feel
Say no to the straw and the plastic bag
Save our Oceans and animals from being sad.

Cold as ice and warm as fire
Cold as fire, warm as ice
When cold is cold the air is warm.
Pain, pleasure. Ignorance, hatred,
Save our sanctuary; it's not ours
We owe it to our greed, not our love.
There is no hyperbole in the pain pollution and power we use,
Polluting the paradise; neglecting the nature, loathing the love.
Polar bears, rhinos, pandas and apes
Staring into the jaws of decay.
Last moments of fear, fear the machinery;
machinery built for destruction.
Fear of the clouds of death blanketing the earth.
The homes that they have and the creatures they love,
Hunted by predators not hunting for prey but destruction.
Metal predators. Built for destruction.
A plague of grey on our green earth.

It starts with one….
It starts with one planet – one life,
With one realisation, one light bulb moment,
With one person who loves and respects,
With one friend, one world leader,
With one conversation, one team, one action
With one wish for a better future.
Preserving one rainforest, planting one tree,
Protecting one orang-utan, releasing one rhino,
Providing one village pump, saving one ice cap,
Taking one stride, sharing one car.
One lifetime together –
Caring for our common home.
