Socialist Sonnet No. 87



Conference Of the Parties being fossil fuelled

Might be better known, to meet its function,

As COP, that’s Continue Oil Production.

Significant change will be overruled

To favour those whose intent is to foil

Advocates who would convince the meeting

Of perils of global over-heating

From continued use of coal, gas and oil.

Delegates jet in for a jamboree,

To be feted by lobbyists who insist

Temperature targets can be safely missed

A while yet; it’s all a matter of degree.

Certainly, emissions might be reduced,

Just as long as profits are still produced.
