If the Clouds could Speak
She would cry bucket of tears every day
As our recklessness causes her to be weak
For we burn debris like hell every day.
If the clouds could speak out,
They will tell us their horrible stories
They’ll sing it aloud with a great shout
For a cleaner environment with their stories.
If the clouds have any option
They’ll get angry without announcement
They’ll choose to do so and abandon us without any option
They’ll move for a clean environmental law enforcement.
Will you keep Calabar clean?
Will you stay clean and keep clean?
Stay green and protect the environment
Like the clouds, join hands for enforcement.
