Try To Remember

My poem about the aftermath of the Climate Change Summit in Glasgow.

As Greta Thunberg once said,

‘Blah, blah, blah.’

We’ve made slight progress,

But still not come far.

COP26 was just a photo op

For leaders who didn’t bother to stay

And make decisions, implement real change.

They’d rather just fly right away.

Instead they made a token gesture,

And showed their faces and smiled and waved,

But the reality is we haven’t got very far,

The rainforest didn’t quite get saved.

Carbon neutral a long way off,

Targets that feel like bluff,

Many not involved at all,

When will enough be enough?

Please let me know in the comments what you think about this matter.
