The Ultimate Sacrifice
A True Story in Verse
Dedicated to the children of today, who are our future
By Simon Law
Global warming, ‘it’s just a blip’, we said, as we carried on our toil
Hacking down the rainforests because, ‘we need more Palm Oil’
‘No-one cares about the Orangutans with their long gangly arms’
The problem was, they didn’t realise, the extent of the harm
The ice caps were melting, the sea levels rose,
The sky was polluted, and still big business chose ..
To carry on their voyage towards profits and with greed …
chose to ignore, the millions of hungry mouths to feed

So what happened next? my precious child, you ask with curious awe
Did we really go back, to the way we were before?
Well, look around and tell me. Tell me, was it worth the price?
The price so many thousands paid .. The Ultimate Sacrifice
And now we have a choice, of the road that we can take
Let’s hope that it’s the right one, for all our futures sake
So here’s our plea as children, “don’t let the signs be misread”
Please .. listen to us, and our planet, and “change the way ahead
