Taking Care of Our Surrounding

Pungent odor permeated the air

Rubbish lay dispersed across the alley

A horrible place, more than one could bear

Intensified by vulgar graffiti


Tipped-over trash bins scattered on the ground

As leftovers are scrimmaged by rodents

The floor had turned black when it once was brown

Dirt and decay defining each moment


A figure started to empty the bins

Cleaning the place to his heart’s content

Very soon many figures could be seen

The place now emitted a fresh, new scent


If people took care of the surrounding

Life would become much more satisfying

We the people need to work together to clean up this planet
