Meetings

Meetings

Got a problem to solve,
A hitch to resolve,
Get involved, stick your feet in,
Time to greet, call a meeting.

There's no need to slum it,
We'll call a posh summit.
Why rough it in Havering,
We'll fly abroad for our gathering.

We can sort any difference
By having a conference,
Make sure there's decorum
And have a big forum.

There could be provocation
At this next convocation,
It may get a bit raucous,
Shall we call it a caucus?

A convention sounds good,
The intention though should
Be to eat, wine and chat
Discuss, chew the fat.

Whatever we do,
We mustn't take action,
That would split us in two
And start a new faction.

Ten Climate Summits

Ten Climate Summits
(to the tune of ten green bottles)

Ten Climate Summits hanging by a thread,
Ten Climate Summits hanging by a thread,
And if one Climate Summit should melt into the Med,
There'd be nine Climate Summits hanging by a thread.

Nine Climate Summits hanging by a thread,
Nine Climate Summits hanging by a thread,
And if one Climate Summit should melt into the Med,
There'd be eight Climate Summits hanging by a thread.

Etcetera...

One Climate Summit hanging by a thread,
One Climate Summit hanging by a thread,
If that last Climate Summit should melt into the Med,
There'll be no Blue Planet and we will all be dead!

Priorities

Priorities

The time for weasel words, prevarication,
procrastination, has long past.
We need action, deeds, movement,
vitality, vigour and fast.
There is no time left to lose, our planet
is dying, we've let it;
we have to stop talking and act,
politicians don't get it.

The businessmen guarding their
absolute interests should
consider what use any business
if earth is one humongous flood.
Health, education, economy,
everything must take a back seat,
our one prime objective,
has got to be curbing this heat.

It’s not enough

It's not enough

To hope
that we are more tolerant
than our parents.
Ce n'est pas assez
Do it today.

To hope
that the planet
will not succumb
to global warming.
Ce n'est pas assez
Do it today.

To hope
that justice
will be done.
Ce n'est pas assez
Do it today.

To hope
for 
a brighter future.
Ce n'est pas assez
Do it today.

To hope that
anything
will change.
Ce n'est pas assez
Do it today.

Ce n'est pas assez:  It's not enough
