Despair

You can moan all you want about forests and fire,
You can say all you want, with your witty satire,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want about oceans of plastic,
Your know-it-all science comes across too scholastic,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want that the ice disappearing,
You can say whay you want, I am now beyond hearing,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want about weather conditions,
Not a thing you can say that will change my position,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want about species extinction,
Gorillas or rhinos, I make no distinction,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You can moan all you want ’bout the absense of bees,
All those insect species now feeling the squeeze,
You can moan all you want as our world disappears,
‘Cos one thing’s for sure, buddy, I won’t be here.

You might think this is almighty strange,
But there’s nothing you could say will make me change,
You can say what you want about the declining earth
Because nothing you say will affect my net worth.

Fandango’s One Word Challenge (19 September 2020)

I did a couple of these recently. The other day, I pointed out that the song was 50 years old. This one is even older, 57 years, 1963. I need to change tack tomorrow.

for Fandango’s One Word Challenge (FOWC), doleful.

Competition

Daughter’s cat is still prone to being bad-tempered at times, although she is much improved from her original state of just being pissed all the time.

But while my wife was in the toilet, she was uppity again this morning, after she (cat) had wandered inon her (wife). With my best poetic hat on, I said:

Did she start hissing,
while you were pissing?

My wife was using the toilet just prior to driving over to see her mother. Not to be outdone, she replied:

I’d better get going,
Before it starts snowing.

It’s not gonna snow today, but, you know… license. And then, amazed at her own poetic ability, she added:

See? I can do it too,
But not as well as you.
