To The Greenwashed Masses

Late in the year before the cold wind stays
I watch the sunset, pondering the ways
That we humans have assaulted the Earth;
Reviewing our efforts with grim mirth.

I reflect upon the greenwashed masses
Co-opted by the corporate asses
Rip tops off the Green Mountains to save the Earth!
Add more inches to the Fat Cat’s girth.

The environmental leaders in this
Are strangely silent; they’ve taken a piss.
Closed-lipped, afraid of losing precious funds,
GazMetro laughs at these faint-hearted ones.

Saddened, aching, I take in the sunset:

Those on the sidelines deserve what they get.

By Old Crow Himself!
