We need your help
"We need your help" the small voice said
"Please human we know that you are kind"
I looked around and what did I find?
In front of me and everywhere
Were mice, moths, spiders and yet more
These critters who clearly lived with me
"We need your help" they said again
Then I saw birds and butterflies
There at the window pane looking in
Clearly there was a problem true
As at the door there was a bee
That sat right down on my hand and said
"I'm the spokesman for all the rest
And I am here at their behest
The world is dying don't you know?
"Humans have hurt the Earth, it is bad
Seas filthy with you dumping trash
Forests felled, wildlife killed, end is near"
"Oh man, can't you see? Pity me
Chemicals have killed bees galore
Plants only seed if we fertilize"
"What can I do, I'm a writer?"
It was just then he looked brighter
"Good then you can tell the whole wide world"
So it was, we then worked and planned
For mountains, forests, seas and sand
Room for one and all...except for man!
