A Short Poem on Climate Change in the run up to Christmas, 2009
I fly abroad – the speed of sound;
That’s the way to cover ground
Why holiday here when you can go
Around the world, for sun and snow
I must have two mobile phones
I’ve two ears, to hear their tones;
The latest gadgets so amuse me
Energy to make them ? – don’t confuse me !
I gave the future not a glance,
And rashly leaping took a chance;
Oh, dear, oh, dear, I should have looked;
I’m sorry kids … your goose is cooked !
