Earth Day Anthem

New lyrics to “America the Beautiful”

O God forbid that smoggy skies
should choke the whooping crane.
May our misuse of fossil fuels
give way to fields of grain.
May green become as popular
as are red, white and blue.
Let the resources we enjoy
be those that can renew.

America the Beautiful.
May those three words again
be sung in schools and county fairs
and baseball stadiums.
But first let beauty be restored
by keeping roadways clean
through putting litter in its place
and joining Medved’s team.
