A haiku for Earth Day 2020

The future is bright
As long as we do what’s right
Don’t give up the fight

I’m dedicating this haiku to Earth Day 2020 (22 April), the 50th anniversary of Earth Day!

The theme for Earth Day 2020 is climate action. The enormous challenge — but also the vast opportunities — of action on climate change have distinguished the issue as the most pressing topic for the 50th anniversary.

Climate change represents the biggest challenge to the future of humanity and the life-support systems that make our world habitable.

This haiku was written for Weekly haiku challenge #299 hosted by Ronovan Writes.
I don’t know whether it’s good form for a haiku to rhyme. Here’s hoping I won’t be penalised for getting it wrong!

    I think a rhyme in a haiku is like a cherry on the icing on the cake. The cake would be nice without it but it’s an unexpected bonus nonetheless

    But not while Trump is in sight
    Don’t give up the fight
