One of the problems we are facing, is pollution
If we work together we can find a solution
We are running out of time, like the world clock tick tick
If we don’t act now, the Earth will die quick
Littering and laziness is costing us the Earth
There is no planet b, there is no rebirth
We tried to help you, we were concerned
But you didn’t listen so our Country burned
We have got a chance to create a treaty
There is enough to share, don’t be greedy
There are a few small things that we all can do
If your wondering what, we can give you a clue?
From a dying planet there is no immunity
We can save the planet, as a global community
Don’t worry don’t despair, all hope in our country is not gone
Make us feel like we all belong, its time we all get it right.
Our writing submission is about how as a global community we have previously not been caring for the land enough but if we work together and put aside our differences we can make a positive change. Our submission relates to reconciliation because after our lessons we could see that we won’t be able to make lasting change and difference without first healing ourselves. Our submission makes it clear that work needs to be done in caring for Country or we won’t have any country left.
Reconciliation means …healing and joining together as one to share experiences and knowledge.

What the judges said:
“I particularly liked the rap flow of this piece – the use of sonic elements, rhyme and rhythmic layers to convey the message of Caring for Country on a global scale. A great social message. Well done.”
“Beautiful mix of voices, clear message, evocative!”
