Some say
There is nothing new
Under the sun Yet look at the damage
we have done. Unprecedented heat,
In our oceans,
In the air, Young Greta Thunberg’s
Reminding us to care, Veering us from the dangers Of 1.5 Celsius degree
global heating, Listen to our planet’s
Open-hearted bleeding, Indigenous knowledge
Must be leading And wasteful trends
Best be fleeting Hear AOC’s voice,
A Green New Deal Reminding us of our collective
power to heal. Let’s get out in the streets
And make our voices heard, From the ballot box
To the boombox, It’s time to spread the word! It’s time for green food,
And green transportation, Respect of the land,
Environmentalization, From green greed,
To green good, It’s time to make fresh veggies,
Water and jobs Accessible in the hood, Let us save water,
The basis of all life, To give future generations
A chance to hold the mic, “The sky is the limit”
we told them! We have 10 years to act. To clean up fossil fuel
covered facts, Let’s opt for trains
and electric cars, Rewrite our destiny
Outlined in the stars, Before we have hope,
There must be action, 10 years,
One goal,
Less partisan factions. The time is now
For collective
political traction.
