From Margaret McCartney

From Margaret McCartney

A poem written after George Bush refused to sign the Kyoto Agreement in 2001:

1. I love nice sunsets
I don’t know why
But every time
I look to the sky

2. I see God’s work
In every cloud
And wonder if
He’s thinking aloud

3. “What have they done
To my best creation
The earth, the sky
The deep blue oceans

4. I hope they stop
Before it’s too late
For one day they’ll
meet me
At the Pearly Gates

5. And I will want
A good reason why
They are destroying
My earth, sea and sky”

6. His wrath we’ll feel
His displeasure see
For once His creation is gone
So are we.

[June 2001]
