By Kelly Roper
Watching smoke stacks choke the sky
Always makes me want to cry.
I just can’t help but wonder why
The factories won’t even try
To find a safer, better way
To put their poisonous waste away.
In this poem Kelly Roper is talking about all the factories that blow out dirty substances. Pollution isn’t just garbage being on the ground. It also includes dirty substances in the air also known as air pollution. Air pollution is when chemicals and particles enter the atmosphere. These chemicals and particles can cause diseases that can lead to death or be very disturbing to human beings or creatures.
