Beautiful Planet

November 25, 2019

 These current concerns are far from new

  As recorded by Canada's own The Guess Who

   While the Maple Leaf goes unfurled

  Sing  "Don't Give Me No Handmedown World".

 

  The sentiment needs much more emphasis

  To continue the metamorphosis

   To dodge this imminent crisis

  For such a beautiful Planet this is.

 

  Carbon mercury lead and cadmium

   All out of place, VOMITORIUM

   Neonic pesticides

   Nuclear waste

   Microplastics

   Consume, make haste

   The "frictionless commerce" we know translates

   Plastic on screens to marine vertebrates

   Demonstration only of friction displaced.

 

   Now frequent are statements of "going green"

   While resolutely high carbon regime

   Will Earth's record as archaeology scene

   Well before the anthropocene

   Continue,  you know what I mean.

 

  After corporate confiscations

  What remains for final nations?

  Who arrives for excavations?

  No current lobby group have they

  Campaign funding ZERO, no money,  NO WAY

  Sapiens they will NOT BE

  Almost a CERTAINTY

  If that's not irony

  Try perversity 

   So how rate they today's priority

  To policymakers and society

  Reject this mediocrity

  Cease expediency for THIS  archaeology

  While such a beautiful Planet this is.

 

  Clever primates trainable eminently

  Ask by legitimate agency?

  To achieve WHAT, exactly, ultimately?

  Witness "drivethru service" choreography.

 

  To be a champion of Gaia

  Should not demand one be pariah

  Be the shameless iconoclastic

  Continue to renounce the plastic

  Keep critique on main paradigm

  Many a time there is no rhyme

  For the future we wish to share

  Advance the fight

  Eclipse despair         

  Resist the strategy that brings confusion

  Denial distraction silence illusion 

  Renounce the microcosmic focus

  Corporate media,hocuspocus

  For all of that there's scant defence

  The big landscape of acquiescence

  Excresence, excresence, makes no sense

 

  Black Friday is apt appellation

  Give darkness no exaltation

  Best choice always illumination

  No priority to lobotomization

  Ramp up the shit detection

  Intensify all dot connection

  CREATE another aspiration

  Retaliation,activation

  For sustainability and life affirmation

  So worthy are we of preservation

  And such a beautiful planet this is.
