1. Read the poem carefully and answer the questions that follow :
What does the future hold for us?
Smog-filled skies and poison cars
And broken land with useless dust
And Nature's beauty behind bars.
Can i walk into a forest
And surround myself with trees
Yet know that it will remain
For me to visit as I please?
Can I sit upon the seashore
And breathe in salty air,
Or will it be so dirty
That it is unsafe to be there?
I know that I can today Do
all the things I've side But
when today is yesterday
Will all these things be dead?
This problem is enormous
As we gradually take heed.
So we must fix it quickly,
Using words and thoughts and deeds.
If we save what's there before us
So it'll be there when we go
Then we'll leave a gift more precious
Than our kids will ever know.
