The Cycle

Oh, clear, wet water
Is so refreshing
Why must people trash it?
It’s such a blessing

The ocean used to be clear, clean and fresh
Now, it’s littered with wet, soggy trash
Polluted water every where
Like a dirty car that has crashed

There are approximately
14 billion pounds of trash in the ocean
10.5 million pounds are plastic
That kills over 1 million ocean animals a year
Which is very drastic

We’ve turned the ocean into a hoarder
So many ocean animals gone in a year
Leaving the ocean with more plastic than fish
Should bring us all to tears
