Poetry – Dear Mrs Planet

Dear Mrs Planet


Dear Mrs Planet, you know we’re just chimpanzees

Who think we’re very clever.

So help us if you please,

Because we think we’ll live forever.


We think the oceans are an infinite resource

That we can fish and fish;

That we can take what we want by force

And do anything we wish.


But you know Mrs Planet,

How deluded we can be

Consuming like a greedy gannet,

And failing to agree.


But please Mrs Planet,

Remember it was you who created us.

Please don’t have a hissy fit

And kick us off the bus.


We’ll plant lots of trees

And not spray all the land

With toxic chemicals.

We’ll try to get them banned.


We’ll try our very hardest

To be so very good

And behave with intelligence

Like we know we should.


I’m writing Mrs Planet,

To apologise.

Please Mrs Planet,

Open our eyes and make us wise.
