Deep into the rainforest, a struggle to survive From insects to leaved trees, wanting all to thrive The habitat of animals, species all around Living things a-plenty, crawling on the ground

The four main layers play a different role The bio-diversity forms part of the whole The dark forest floor and the understory Shorter plants existing, many bugs to see

The vibrant middle layer, yet forms the canopy Climbing the emergent, just like a monkey The strong plant materials, helps to build a home For people of the Amazon, food that has been grown

Tropical regions, Equator ever near A moderate climate, giant trees are here Forests on a mountain, misty all around Coated in a moss, such an eerie surround

North and South America and Oceania Asia and Europe, as well as Africa There’s a cycle of life, yet deforestation Affects the homes of animals for plantation

Removing ecosystems, can cause erosion Droughts as well as flooding, less cohesion The modern ways of man affects vegetation Contributing to a silent devastation

Replanting, recycling, assisting with crops Steps of preservation quench like raindrops The precious seeds and life, of which can be found Yet, it’s not too late to turn this world around
