The Conspiracy Effect

Updated on September 30, 2019

There is a conspiracy by Humanity, that of the human kind,

If you open your eyes, you may see, if not, you are as blind.

This wrong spreads by sea to sea, shore to shinning shore,

If recognized as true, such facts cause alarm, all may abhor.


The oceans all run in reds and blues, not just from our songs,

Caused by trash, polluted by many, abused by many wrongs.

Poor creatures all gasp for air, the oxygen so shared by each,

The breath of life then leaves us, open eyes so we may teach.


The airs we share around the earth, does reach its entire girth,

Polluted by factories belching gas, all smoke stacks giving birth.

The birds and insects are dying off, humans soon take the lead,

No matter how much money is made, not one will ever succeed.


As dyes are cast, the chemicals are dumped, all about this place,

the chance that we will all survive, say nay, it's thrown in our face.

Is not for the common good, our garbage thrown most everywhere,

Can't we each make a difference then, earth was meant to share?


Plastics spread around the planet, to the moon it soon shall reach,

Swept by tides the seas afford, all lay strewn from beach to beach.

Poor fish and mammals struggle to live, while all tangled in a heap,

It seems as though we are getting our dues, sewing what we reap!


As space debris leaves its ugly trail, revealing humans must be near,

A trip to Mars, despite all candy bars, promotes such a world of fear.

Must we contaminate other planets, as well, as so much to our own,

When will we finally awake, take responsibility, no more to condone?

      All I can do is shake my head. What are people thinking? But I don't see the end of the world. We conserve, protect and spread the word of the good parts of the world.

      Everyone should read this heartfelt poem which states clearly our need as human beings to wake up and realise our world is dying, and if we don't come together to save the planet then we will have sealed our own fate.

      This is all rather disturbing, whonu. Man needs to stop polluting the world and be more morally responsible. Good poem.
