The Web Poetry Corner - James Bredin - Silly UN Stuff

Silly UN Stuff

by

James Bredin


Did you hear that climate change is coming at least by next week?
Droughts, torrential rains by Thursday afternoon at least,
The ice cap they say will melt and the seas are going to rise,
It's just too horrible to contemplate so go hide or disguise.

They say carbon dioxide emissions are the main cause,
We're in deep trouble if we don't stop driving or pause,
But the UN has come up with a cool Kyoto solution,
Though US, India or China refused this resolution.

This once respected advocate for human rights was a shield,
Has now put Sudan and the US on the same playing field,
Their Amnesty International report said an awful lot,
Compared Guantanamo to the Gulag without a second thought.

They blamed the US for those death-penalty convictions,
Didn't blame much worse UN despot dictator jurisdictions,
The UN is now more than askew, locked into its agenda,
Chock a block with frivolous or terrorist propaganda.
