Talking to some friends of mine
The birds, the beasts and a fish or two
Wondering what we should do
Clearly climate was in strife
Surely the creatures who were to blame
Would forfeit their lives in shame
They looked down as they discussed
And avoided glancing in my eyes
Who was at fault? No surprise!
Clearly the Earth would not survive
If the most destructive creature stayed
"Sorry sir, it's you I'm afraid"
Trying to soften the blow
They said "It's not you but all your mates"
"For you it's the pearly gates"
I tried to plead for a stay
They said "Use your brains, rocket away"
"Bio-diversity is the only way"
Then I awoke from that wild dream
For they were right and we were so wrong
We must change before that gong
