via Daily Prompt: Viable


What do you consider
To be a viable notion?
The notion of drilling
And polluting our oceans?

The ease at which garbage
Can be dumped and thrown
Onto our streets,
Into places unknown?

Companies disposing of
Chemical waste
Into our rivers, our streams
Any place?

Manufacturing, dumping
Waste fields galore
Into our sewers, filling
Ponds and much more?

How about . . . .
An alternative fund
Of energy thru wind
Solar and sun?

No need, to have to
Go underground
Mining for coal
In northern towns.

Get the men, up
Out of the mines
Out in the open
Utilize the sunshine.

We need to honor the
State of our planet
Take care of this world
Not take it for granted.
