"Nobody knows what's happening to de weather
An all of a sudden we're told to pull together
Pull together?
Pull together
An recycle ya paper.
De government said if yu don't yu will regret it later,
Dem used to sey dat Green was soft
Don't worry bout de atmosphere
An now a scientist has said,
'Oh damn, we're going to disappear.'
Fe years
Yu hav been fighting wars an destroying de scene
An now dat yu dying
Yu start turn Green."

Benjamin Zephaniah, Me Green Poem, City Psalms 1992
