Environmental Change

by @thegreens

You shit, piss and pollute upstream; then drink downstream. Are you not a "shithole"?
People of Mother Earth, please Change!

You pollute the air and breath the same air: isn't it insane?
Homo sapiens, change!

You litter the streets and complain about the filth.
"Chai", I beg change!

You cut the trees, eat much meat, burn the fuels and complain about the heat: Yet deny climate change.
Isn't this surprising? My people, change!

You reclaim the land but cry about the floods.
Where did you want the water to go? My "Kontri" people change!

You want good food but promote fertilized farming.
Isn't it crazy? My brothers and sisters change!

You kill bees, till the soil and expect good yields. "Anyhow e dey, change!"

You condemn and deny "canda stick" (traditional medicine) but drink modern medicine.
Where do u think the raw materials for your medicine come from? Change!

In all, you want good health in a bad environment. Well, visit a psychiatrist or Change!
