KEEP THIS FEELING ALIVE
by John Yeo
The damaging spell has been broken
Our way of life is changed forever,
The habits of centuries revoked,
Normality has returned to the weather.
Fossil-fuels have been banned,
Our land will again be green,
Renewable energy is in demand.
The difference will quickly be seen.
The atmosphere will return to the norm,
Deserts will recede through lack of heat,
As icebergs, and icefields slowly re-form.
Life will breathe fresh air so sweet.
The greenhouse gas magnified the sun
Icebergs will re-form on the North terrain.
As the gas disperses and cools the land,
The desert will green with welcome rain.
Our children will inherit our world
With fuels and energy burning clean.
A green and beautiful land is revealled,
The broken spell is a wonderful dream.
