Swarming For Global Warming

In the middle of the Universe, I stand Geared up to continue our deed And since from our native planet, we have been banned The two of us carry on at light speed Zirck and I traveled afar from an orb called, Quoll Where our planet has turned cold as ice See, we couldn’t burn any more wood, oil, or coal Due to our leader’s fake science advice We looked over new galaxies for what it’s worth For a planet that could share some spare heat That’s when we were told about planet earth That’s not as cold as our big old ice sheet We traveled ten light years to the Milky Way And saw earth had lots of spaceships swarming We had no other choice than to join the fray To absorb some of earth’s global warming While at once I noticed that I stopped shivering Zirck the sharp genius, hacked a satellite Thus we observed the news they were delivering And heard CNN state: earth just isn’t right We learned that the U.S. wanted to stop burning So that I said, “Great, here we go again.” One more planet worried about comfy warming And we knew what they’d propose, but when? The next thing that we heard was an urgent report Which we figured lacked all common sense It was: since humans ate too much beef and pork Their ozone was failing due to flatulence Zirck thought we should tell the naïve people on earth That global warming is just a huge scam Made by greedy leaders who want to tax your worth For carbon dues, while they buy jets and scram Remember when gazing up at the starry sky There may be aliens in mourning For they’ve already endured that pilfering lie Made by their leaders about global warming. For In the middle of the Universe, I stand contest

Nice! (Given the chance, Al Gore would burn your poem and tax you on the emissions.)

After the debacle of the Iraqi war, one would be need to be a fool to be led by the nose by government. This poem is a funny take on the subject.

G'day David... I think governments have run out of things to tax, so why not tax the air. If thirty years ago somebody said what was going to be taxed in the future, they would have been shot into outer space. Good message David - Lindsay
