It is up to me and you!!

We all want that holiday I know we do it’s true but we are choking up the skies and seas and it is all down to me and you. The polar regions are melting the sun is burning through an ever growing hole in the ozone again that’s down to me and you.

I know you fancy a safari such an exciting thing to do but the way poachers are shooting and hunting big and small game, soon the only way you’ll be able to see them will be in a Zoo. We all love lots of vegetables and fresh fruit , whether in season or not. I know you do it ‘s true.They are sourced from countries afar, shame ! I hear you shout but wait!! that too is down to me and you!

We all have our heating in the winter keeping us hot and having all lights burning that seems the thing to do! But we are wasting our resources you know we are it is true. Coal oil and water are not infinite, that you know is true! They are always being wasted, that again is all down to me and you.

The children and young people are turning into jobless’s true. We send them off to Uni then we have no jobs for them to do. The are all going off the rails  a whole generation or maybe two not taught any politeness, good values or will to work …….. yes again it is down to me and you.

I could go on for ever, you know I could it is true  but I can tell you are all switching off , suddenly you all have better things to do!Well listen to me or not that is up to you but all our resources  and all that is good about this planet is dying off it is true. Soon there will be nothing left and yes that is all down to me and you!.


nothing will be left!

    I am with you all the way on this one, Willowdot! Much needed information and call for action in this post to begin healing of our planet! Walk, don’t ride. Bike, don’t hide. Dry clothes outside. Flush not into the tide.

    P.S. Willowdot, you should enjoy the reblogs I put on my blog today about improvements in two countries on the African continent and about the utter ridiculousness of members of the U.S. Congress and some of their staff members!

    So very true!! If we all tried to change then the industries would try to please us, if we want organic that’s what they’ll give us, if the masses demand cleaner energy and don’t settle for less, that’s what we’ll get!
    Love the quote 🙂

    we are the fleas on the dog named earth, and sooner or later the over population will require a flea bath and many, many people will be extermintaed, yet a few will live to start a new. Mother earth spins through space at 66,000 mph, and no one is driving, the theory of mars is that it was once positoned where earth is now and had life and water, one day earth will be the new mars and venus will be the new earth, it happens in trillions of years, we are but a spark in the flame of things.

      AND SO THE PLANETS ALL REPOSITION THEMSELVES? That is if our sun does not die first, or we starve half the world out, or evaporate everything and every one with some type of weapon. Thank you for brightening my days with you Zen musings …. XXX

    You’re such a natural with rhyme & rhythm. The photo is amazing – the photographer would have to have been in a plane; excellent shot.

    When you spoke of poachers & people killing the lives of the jungle – that’s one thing that really, really saddens me. It is absolutely up to me & you. Superbly said.
