Flutter By

What if
you try to find how many
beats per minute it has on your calculator?
No matter how strong your calculator,
on the screen would be

This miracle bird
has baffled scientists
for centuries.

Every morning at my grandparents' place
I see these beautiful creatures
next to the bird feeder.

Unfortunately, hummingbirds
might die out in the world
if we don't act now.

To stop polluting
why don't we use wind and solar-
made electricity to power everything
and stop mass producing stuff
that no one needs?

Let's lead an environmental outbreak
that saves hummingbirds and the world, too.

In a hummingbird's perspective, would you
like to be poisoned by pollutants and lose
your food source?

If we don't stop ruining the world,
we won't see those beating wings anymore.
