A summer full of sunshine Rays
Of clear blue skies and warm heat haze
Of days spent lounging by the pool
Of summer hols. Away from school
Of ice cream cones and buttered scones
Of swimming trunks and sun cream.
And then I see the great North Pole
A top of it a great big hole
The Penguins and the polar bears
They are wondering now who really cares.
The icebergs melting moving fast
One wonders if the dye is cast
How long will our great planet last.
The factories and the man made places
Increase the effect of greenhouse gasses
The fossil fuels whose use abounds
Our ignorance of this astounds
If we don’t teach energy in our classes
The future of our world’s in crisis.
No more we’ll see the summer haze
A world of deserts no grass to graze
Let’s rethink our strategy on how we live
And keep the world that God did give
