If Greta’s right, then we might have to give
our cars up, and stop flying and perhaps
stop eating meat – why how’s a man to live
without a car as big as other chaps
If Greta’s right (how can she be, she’s just
a girl, and what is more she’s slightly odd)
We’ll have to live on lettuce, and a crust
And shiver, and in winter go unshod
That Greta’s wrong. That’s easier to say
Much easier than looking at ourselves
It’s not as if we’ll live long anyway
Sod Greta. Pile the plastic on the shelves
And light the sky up bright with fossil fuels
The children lie. The scientists are fools.

Will be spreading far and wide every time I see some old man creep out from under a stone with the usual nonsense about her.
Thank you, Ian
All these are very good Gail, but you must have something on ‘our’ Mr Johnson that you are not sharing!
If I had anything on Mr Johnson I can assure you I would have shared it a long time ago!
