I want to save the plant
so that my babies' babies will have
clean air to breathe and trees
to sit under and fruit to eat.
I want science not evolution.
I want us to be stewards of
heaven on this Earth. I'm not
ready to be added to the endangered
species list just yet.
I want environmental policies that
promote sustainable urban development;
suits and Birkenstocks, together creating
green spaces where healthy people thrive.
What Do I want?
I want a real orange that tastes like
sunshine and its juices stick to my fingers.
I want to live long enough to giggle with my babies'
babies and inhale long, sweet breaths.
This week's prompt at Sunday Scribblings asked contributors to ask a question. I want a lot of things. This draft was inspired by Majora Carter's impassioned presentation on Ted.com
