Triquatrain

Green Umbrella

by Bucketlist

 
 
Where there's Rain Forest life there's strife
In habitats hot and humid , dark and light
Where animals roam each loses its home
Many are being disrupted day and night


Trees are cropped without being stopped
Disturb nature's balance despite public cries
Our oxgen is being depleted, still it's repeated
For the wants of ‘Man’ the Rain Forest dies

Rain forest's demise it's unnatural downsize
It used to have four layers of green umbrella
In symbiotic balance ground up, as once found
Now that protection is less than stellar
