“Oh, look out, the planet’s heating up! ”
by Tom Mottram
Yes, with snow at Easter.
Change your story bloody quick:
Generic change is now its theme?
Experts lie in unison:
The “world-wide” united front
Subjugating democracy to one
Of quangoes and committees
And some self-righteous wealthy WASP
(Sans “P”, bien sûr)
Brags about his Prius
And that little chimney-top fan
And I think
“Good for you,
Now shut up,
And floating over this sanctimonious
Orgy of pontification
I see a cackling spectral ghoul
Astride his green ethereal bike:
The phantom of good Joe McCarthy
Reborn in new guise;
But now ‘tis he serves
The veiled armies of Marx
That hammer Freedom’s door.
Politicians grin from ear to ear
“We know what’s best,
We’ll save the World –
They lock Freedom in Her tomb
One brick at a time.
