I watched the news today

they say the worlds getting warmer

they say the seas are rising

and if we don’t do something soon

its going to get worse


I watched the news today

the great people of the world

discussing how to save the earth

while traders around the globe

sell stripped resources

you buy for the latest luxury


I watched the news today

that computer and flat screen TV

that was saved from the landfill

is being broken down for the copper

and heading back to the market


I watched the news today

they’ve pulped those paper food cartons

and plastic straws

sending them miles away

so you can buy them back as pencil toppers

toys and erasers in a fast food place


I watched the news today

eviction notices issued

to everything living by forest, sea and land

big business say – they’ve got something planned

and as the cities rise up – it’ll look grand

except where the trees and plants used to stand
