Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Sustainability should be our creed
I think itís now generally agreed
Sustainability should be our creed
Not this endless slash-and-burn destruction
That mentality comes from self-centred greed.
There isnít any defining definition
Much more could be done, in a coalition.

If we could bring about some lasting change
Some balanced ideas, sweeping in exchange
On some universal scale the world
This blue planet could be, better sustained
For allÖWe mustnít ever be, deterred
Coz-any-meaningful-outcome is hard earned.

We need to meet the needs of the future
Who amongst us here isnít a wrongdoer?
All our thinking needs to change at some point
Who amongst here hasnít been a polluter?
Each man, woman and child should be employed
Surely we donít want to disappoint.

Shouldnít our children, childrenís existence
Be better or equal in ecosystems
How can we make a difference ourselves?
Listening to all the statisticians
Wows, scary, please give it your best attempts
No longer close your eyes in pretence.

Overpopulated are our societies
Side by sid spreading untold anxieties
Our global footprint isnít it a crushing weight
We must look at our own, improprieties
Decide how weíre going to change this fate
Ö Else just drift till itís all just, too late.
