When lockdowns are off... 
They will be at it again
discharge and pollute!

Spew greenhouse gases
more litters, draining sewers
Beings in sea choke!

Inactivity
ironically cleanses
the environment!

The lockdowns are an experience globally! We learned to do almost everything online;- shopping, schooling, working from home, and more readings. I think a number of restless ones like me have gone into blogging!

With the industries shutting down, the rivers and seas seem cleaner. Will the water pollution come back again?

  1. Although lockdown had its disadvantages, it helped decrease pollution a lot. We could breathe clean air for a short while its unfortunate that things are going back to normal
