Drip, drip, drip, then gone.
Gone just like the day of dawn,
gone like the dinosaurs, gone like the wind.
Gone like the Moa and like the rubbish in the bin.
Going, going, gone.
The water has vanished,
Soon we will be banished.
Water, on what all humans rely,
will disappear for good and we will soon die.
Water is precious, water is scarce, we need water to be fierce.
IT NOT FAIR! We should care.
Not enough to drink, not enough to wash the dishes, not enough to water crops. Not enough to spare, not enough to even share.
Water is being wasted because of human greed,
So come on and follow my lead,
and we shall stop this bad deed.
So what can we do to stop the last few drops of water?
Take shorter showers, fix leaks and turn off your sprinklers.
Don’t spill, waste or take for granted a single drop!
Don’t turn on the washing machine or dishwasher until they’re filled to the top.
Otherwise… going, going, gone.
What are we doing? Say it isn’t true!
7.5 billion people on earth, including you.
Water, the resource on which we rely, is depleting, diminishing, declining, right in front of our eyes.
Pollution, deforestation, overpopulation, and development is pushing water to the brink.
We will sink.. be gone…. extinct.
A healthy planet means more water
for us in the future.
So...splish, splash, squirt, and spray...Let’s hope water is here to stay.
