A Poem For Earth Day

Dear New York,

If it isn't too much trouble,
would you please
put your litter in the trash cans?
Also, it would be much appreciated
if you recycled a bit more.

And while you are thinking of it,
would you mind taking the subway
instead of driving?
Or at least carpooling?

It would also be nice
if you could bring
your own bags to the grocery store.

And could you please
bring a reusable mug to Starbucks?
And maybe, just maybe,
stop buying bottled water.

The Earth

  1. Dear Earth,
    I'm doing my best, but it seems harder and harder to convince others that they need to do better. Thanks for your patience.
