If fear and paranoia grip you

Then get them by the throat

And shake the little bastards

Till they give up hope.


The world has not forgotten

That you plundered every stream

You stole its gold and minerals

You’ve plundered every seam.


It got pissed off with Dinasoars

They got too bloody large

It blew a few volcanoes out

And gassed them with the charge.


So if you fill the oceans up

With plastic bags and mugs,

You’ll swallow water

Spoiled with nasty drugs.


And if you fill the air with

Paraffin from planes

Then you will breath it in,

So nobody gains.


So think about this virus

Which the world has given us

It’s only trying to shake us off

The lice that suck its blood.
