The Death of Utopia

April 2, 2008
By Julia Basham, Elizabethtown, KY

Who cares about the destruction of the earth?
The heat waves from global warming?
Or carbon levels in out atmosphere?
Who cares about all the vanishing polar bears?
The arctic melting at a rapid pace?
Or reducing garbage that we produce?
Who cares about recycling newspapers and bottles?
The conservation of water?
Or the catastrophic weather?
Who cares about biodegradable products?
The use of compact fluorescent light bulbs?
Or replacing old windows?
The difference between an old car and a Hybrid?
Or turning off unused lights?


Who cares about the loss of nirvana?
The demise of paradise?
Or the death of utopia?

I do.
