Letter: It’s time for a fresh start

Rich or poor, young or old, let us all do our part, If we all work together, we can make a new start

We’ve polluted the water, we’ve polluted the soil,

We’ve polluted the air, with smoke, gas and oil

We’ve released toxins, herbicides and pesticides too

Now we fuss and complain about what someone should do

We point at big business and say they’re to blame

But we’re all just as guilty for causing this shame

For we all want perfection in whatever we buy

Now we must all pay the price, don’t blame the next guy

So let’s clean up the soil ,the air, and the streams

Let’s not poison our children with our greed and our dreams

Rich or poor, young or old, let us all do our part

If we all work together, we can make a new start
