Amazon Rainforest by Bradley Spellman

The Amazon rainforest what a beautiful place

Destroyed by man with riches to deface

Once an anchor for the world’s oxygen

What man has done to this place is a sin

Stripped of trees for lumber, cattle, and coffee

Native tribes that once used to roam free

Unusual plants and creatures yet to be found

Exotic Birds and Animals with a very distinctive sound

Strip mining for riches of silver and gold

Wonderous medical treatments yet to behold

The Amazon rainforest is ten million years old

Deforestation and more climate change we’ve been told

Man must stop it’s own self-destruction

Respect the planet or we’re headed for extinction
