Freezing in Green Heaven
It was a night to celebrate
the Green goals had been won.
The last coal mine was firmly shut
and all adored the sun.
Their panels covered all the flats
and turbines spiked the hills.
The young got stoned on ethanol
and oldies got the bills.
The cows were freed from bails and yards
and drilling was rejected.
The rich folk got electric cars
the poor got disconnected.
But then the weather got quite cold
the sun it hibernated.
The power failed, no coal was mined,
most folk refrigerated.
