THE WORLD’S BEEN SAVED FROM CLIMATE CHANGE! (weekly poem)

THE WORLD’S BEEN SAVED FROM CLIMATE CHANGE!

Following last weekend’s Paris climate deal, the government,
will not say whether it will still cut solar subsidies by 90%.

The world’s been saved from climate change,
The pact has now been signed;
But vested interests will arrange,
To have it undermined.

The pressure of the market place,
Will always trump good deeds;
And it’ll always be the case,
That profits top real needs.

The cost to the economy,
Will always be too much;
And Number Ten quite pliantly,
Will loosen the pact’s clutch.

So don’t be disappointed when,
The government falls short;
As everyone will know by then,
We’ve once again been caught!
