Ottawa's Festival of Ideas Since 1997

(Untitled)

Roses are red
Violets are blue
This poem was reused
So why aren’t recyclables too?

 

We think about what’s outside our galaxy but won’t pay attention to what’s around us.

 

We choose to ignore our friends and family for a phone, yet we pay attention to what we have not yet seen.

 

We want more of this and more of that but our water is slowly decreasing and we are blinded by things that don’t matter right now.

 

We hope to see our next generation grow but letting pollution grow will only make things hard for them.
