Responsibility


“No news is good news,”
Or so it is said
But we cannot ignore
What we've seen or read


The world's in trouble
There is more to come
It can't be taken lightly
There's no where to run


Rivers barely flowing
Air quality is poor
Children are going hungry
Dad's been shown the door


With: Preservatives, Cavities,
Derivatives and Additives,
It's "my life" teenage attitudes
I'll fix it political platitudes


What It boils down to
I can clearly see
Each one of us must take
RESPONSIBILITY


We're the ones to blame
For the mess we're in
Not anyone or everyone
Or your evil twin


Give the bike a whirl
Cut up the plastic
You'll lose a pound or two
Find your budget's elastic



Our founding fathers
had big shoes and all
So ask the question
"Are my shoes to small?"


Can we make changes
In all this we own?
Take RESPONSIBILITY
For the seeds we've sown?
