No Time for old men
Updated: Jan 3, 2020
Why is Man Of The Year a teenage girl?
Where were all of the men in 2019?
While the Amazon burned,
Trump wanted to water bomb Notre Dame
And rake California, as firemen died in the bush
Species facing extinction, bye-bye Koala bears
Extinction Rebellion marches and Fridays4Future,
are we all insane, watching a continent burn?
There are no heroes to be found,
in cabinets and on the ground.
Have they all died in ditches,
trying to get Brexit done?
Why was President Bolsonaro blaming
Leonardo Dicaprio for the Amazon fires,
while firing his own Brazilian scientists?
Have all the heroes died of Windmill Cancer?
Are they too busy rage tweeting on their toilet
and trying 15 times to flush all this shit down?
A little girl who thinks we are running out of time
became Time magazine’s Person of the Year.
She joins a long list of famous men
Adolf Hitler in 1938, Stalin in 1939,
George W Bush and Barrack Obama.
Why is there a young girl
on the cover of Time magazine?
I think I'll have to renew my subscription
and see behind this Rainforest smokescreen
