Discrepancy between words and deeds
Between shouts on the street
And whispers in the negotiation room
Jumping from slogans to mantras
And vice versa
Those who control us
Because they control money
Do not control anything
It’s not even funny!
The doors to solution
Are sealed with red tapes
Some say no use running
But we are running late.
50% gas reduction by 2050
Chances to reach are not pretty.
The main show in the ring
Is political posturing
We need decisive global action
But they cheat on emissions’ reduction.
Cap and trade schemes
Are said to have virtues
We’re looking at the movie screen
And stare at copulating tortoises.
Green washing is not enough
When the going is getting tough
There is hope and there is rage
The problem is not climate change
The problem is to change man
Do you know the One who can?
