As Greta Thunberg once said,
‘Blah, blah, blah.’
We’ve made slight progress,
But still not come far.
COP26 was just a photo op
For leaders who didn’t bother to stay
And make decisions, implement real change.
They’d rather just fly right away.
Instead they made a token gesture,
And showed their faces and smiled and waved,
But the reality is we haven’t got very far,
The rainforest didn’t quite get saved.
Carbon neutral a long way off,
Targets that feel like bluff,
Many not involved at all,
When will enough be enough?

For decades, world leaders have been making the same empty promises and nothing has changed. We’re still heading towards our climate disaster
It is very sad but true.
It’s still a mess and I agree it was all a photo op!
The amount of environmental damage they do in one day would take me at least a decade to do. They are in no way practising what they preach but yet us mere mortals do whatever we can daily to make small changes to our lives.
Not that we would be getting a private jet like a regular bus or taxi daily
I love how you were able to put everyone’s thoughts into a poem. Oh, Jamie – if only they would listen!
The climate change and population growth rate are intertwined – but we are too busy to blame others and each other.
Thanks for writing a heartfelt poem.
Great poem! It’s very timely and important.
