Goin' Green

Reuse, Repair, Recycle—that’s the Mantra I have heard
Goin' Green is about those three refreshing little words
So, I’m gonna rehash a poem I penned by free moonlight
Fifty percent post-consumer content should be about just right

Cuz I'm a just a Colored Jade Nephrite, a Green Jadeite
A Shamrock pickin' Emerald Isle dwellin’ Jig dancin' Leprechuan
A Lime tuxedo sportin’ Money grubbin’ Frog catchin'
Rusty copper cleanin' Experience lackin' Greenhorn

Leo’s Oscar speech on climate change, such hypocrisy I never met
You know he wrote that smarmy jag aboard his private jet 
'Splain me how I can Go Green on this Saint Patty's Day 
How much to Al Gore in Carbon Taxes do I need to pay?

Cuz I’m a Hulk smashin’ Jolly Giant bashin’ Jeep drivin' 
Martian zappin' Mantis preyin' Sage advisin' Grass cuttin' 
Gekko stompin' Croc rasslin' Golf course prowlin' 
Cans-and-bottles recyclin’ Gangrene ridden Swamp Gator
