The cult of climate change
Pay attention to the activists and they may drive you mad,
Their global-warming and climate-change cults are the new fad,
As they shout and scream that hunger and misery will be widespread,
That we’re facing an apocalyptic future and we may end up dead.
Certain species such as frogs may be extinct in sixty years,
You too may be dead by then so we should have no fears,
And there’s no need for dialogue because they know the score,
It’s a new godless religion that we’ve never heard of before.
The rainforest may be gone so don’t forget to donate now,
As much money as you dare or your partner will allow,
And we’re all in this together so jump on their wagon,
They have this evangelistic faith of a fire breathing dragon.
Increased drought and water scarcity will lead to lots of hunger,
And we better do something now because we’re not getting younger,
The sea will rise up and flood the land so you should buy a boat.
And if you believe any of this you are definitely a goat.
