Happy Earth Day! (I'm a bit late!) A poem about how we need to care for our Earth before it is too late. (Loosely based on the prompt, liquid.) Hope you enjoy! :) <3

The Sky Is On Fire

The sky is on fire,

The sky is on fire, It's falling in clumps,

The sky is on fire, It's falling in clumps, the reality we know

The sky is on fire, It's falling in clumps, the reality we

The sky is on fire, It's falling in clumps, the reality we knew

The sky is on fire, It's falling in clumps, the reality we knew Is no more than a barren wasteland

The sky is on fire, It's falling in clumps, the reality we knew Is no more than a barren wasteland That reeks of smoke and breathes ash.

Ashes to ashes,

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust,

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, What once we had, we wasted;

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, What once we had, we wasted; The toxin we produced smoldered

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, What once we had, we wasted; The toxin we produced smoldered Burned feverishly in the light

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust, What once we had, we wasted; The toxin we produced smoldered Burned feverishly in the light Of a thousand stars gone out.

The oceans we have

The oceans we

The oceans we had

The oceans we had were on fire.

The oceans we had were on fire. I remember how it was once

The oceans we had were on fire. I remember how it was once To dip one's toes in the cooling azure,

The oceans we had were on fire. I remember how it was once To dip one's toes in the cooling azure, To feel the particles of nature soothe.

But how can we dangle our legs

But how can we dangle our legs In pools full of plastic?

Surely they will cut and burn,

Surely they will cut and burn, Like the skies above them,

Surely they will cut and burn, Like the skies above them, Until all we have left

Surely they will cut and burn, Like the skies above them, Until all we have left Is the shell of an existence.
