The Clean Air Experiment

From VIRAL SPIRAL — A collection of poems by Sarah P. Ross


"The Homeless"


Planet earth is dying
It seems mankind doesn’t care
Cause we all just stopped trying
To stay home for clean air.
For the first time clear
The air we all breathe
Proved to us so dear
When emissions did leave.
But now we’re all back
No more staying at home
And yes, the clean look
Of our air is near gone.
It was proof to us all
That to clean air we can
A true wake-up call
For the preservation of man.
Covid-19 took us there
But the lesson's not done
For all who do care
Truly united as one
Who remember clean air appeared
When we chose to stay home.
