Day 974, Environmental Day
Today’s Environmental Day
With demonstrations everywhere.
The enemy? Our EPA
And folks the Donald put in there.
Attacks aimed at the Golden State
For having tough emissions rules
Show Donald wants to abrogate
All anti-global warming tools.
To understand what motivates
The Donald to make him attack,
Obama’s dark skin aggravates
Trump like sitting on a tack.
Did Correspondent’s Dinner jest (1)
Obama poked at Donald, spur
The Donald’s vow to do his best
To blot out Barack’s signature?
The Golden State commits the crime
Of being liberal; that’s well-known.
So Donald Trump spends lots of time
In raining hellfire and brimstone.
And Donald does not understand
That we are causing climate change.
His only interest is his brand.
All scientists give him the mange.
This land is your land;
This land is my land,
To the New York island. (2)
We must not boil it;
We must not spoil it,
This land that has been home to you and me.
