We must all sit up and take notice of this amazingly insightful poem from 10-year-old Josephine from Kunyung Primary School.
ocean breeze, seven seas
seagulls sore, crashing waves roar
whales sing among the kelp
when really they’re yelling for help
plastic rules the ocean,
fish slowly die –
they must be wondering why.
We’re the problem you see…
Yes you and me
this is no joke
neither an attempt to provoke
billions of animals die
don’t you hear them cry?
