Mother Earth

Stripped, scorched, choked, abused
Peeled, poisoned, pillaged, plundered
Murdered by degrees.

Ten Green (Plastic) Bottles

Ten Green (Plastic) Bottles

Ten world leaders, declaring nothing's wrong.
Nine politicians, stringing us along.

Eight rare species, erased from planet blue.
Seven rain forests, flattened in a coup.

Six choking billions, breathing toxic waste.
Five is the virus, which can not be erased.

Four seas of plastic,poisoning our fish.
Three million skeptics, living on a wish.

Two sole survivors, clinging to a tree.
One final chance now, got no planet B.

Be a Planet Hero

Be a planet hero

Be cool, a planet hero
Not another, planet jerk
Get carbon down to zero
You can ride that bike to work

Be cool, a planet hero
There is, no real excuse
Get carbon down to zero
Recycle, re-use, reduce.

Be cool, a planet hero
A responsible trustee
Get carbon down to zero
You can plant another tree.

Be cool, a planet hero
Volunteer, give up your time
Get carbon down to zero
Litter pick, clean up that grime.

Be cool, a planet hero
Or you just, may be too late
Get carbon down to zero
Speak out now, and educate.

Be cool, a planet hero
The world’s, a little greener
Get carbon down to zero
Insist, non-toxic cleaner.

Be cool, a planet hero
Not a thoughtless planet geek
Get carbon down to zero
Fix it now, that water leak.

Be cool, a planet hero
Not a, cave like troglodyte
Get carbon down to zero
Turn them off, electric lights.

Be cool, a planet hero
Please don’t be, a planet fool
Get carbon down to zero
Only buy, sustainable.

Be cool, a planet hero
Not a planet scallywag
Get carbon down to zero
And re-use, that shopping bag.

Be cool, a planet hero
Do it, any way, or how
Don’t be, another Nero
We’re on fire, and burning now!

And this time tomorrow?

And this time tomorrow?

We are the infantile guardians
of a four billion year old lady
and how do we respond
to that heavy burden?
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

We wage war
over her body parts,
fighting for exclusive rights
to this limb, or that torso.
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

We steal
her most valuable possessions
with no thought
to replace them.
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

We exterminate
anything lower on the food chain
to the point of
extinction.
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

We pollute
her arteries and internal organs
with plastic
and industrial waste.
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

We suffocate her,
filling the air
that she breathes
with noxious gases.
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

We talk
whilst she weeps
at the abuse
she has suffered.
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?

What will change tomorrow?
Tout ou rien?
Demain,
demain, à cette heure-ci?


Tout ou rien:  All or nothing
Et demain, à cette heure-ci?:  And this time tomorrow?

degrees of slow death
mother earth weeps her warm tears.
