As the seagulls gathered by the shore,
Having witnessed a world so different from before,
They considered their options, should they stay or explore?
Were they happy to suffer or did they seek something more?
Humans had altered and changed all their ways,
Cut down all the trees and distorted their gaze,
The people became selfish, with rubbish and muck,
One seagull was narrowly missed by a truck.
Pollution was stifling them, clouding their sight,
Choking them, confusing them and dulling days that should be bright,
But if these dear seagulls should leave their old homes,
Would they find anywhere better, where they weren’t battered by drones?
So seagulls, just let us have one more small chance,
To show you we care and in your honour, take a stance,
A stance again laziness and rubbish and uncaring,
We can turn this around and end your despairing.
This poem was written to show how important it is for us to care for our environment.
