A song for the world

Shake up,
Wake up,
Don’t take it lying down.

Can’t you see the world you love,
Is burning to the ground.

Stand up,
Stand tall,
Show what you all can do.

The world can’t take it anymore,
It’s time is nearly through.

And now you see it,
as your life goes flashing by,
And now you feel it,
and you all begin to cry,
Look what we’ve done now,
something we can’t take back,
You step out on the ice,
You watch it start to crack,

We can’t afford to wait no more,
The clock is nearly dead,
We can’t afford to think or talk,
Or discuss what’s been said,
We have to make a change right now,
Before it is too late,
We have to give the world a chance,
Or else we seal our fate.

Artist's Description

This poem/song I wrote when working at a mine site in West Tasmania. The bleak surrounds we’re probably responsible for the inspiration. Although a lot of it is what we are doing to our planet. That’s right it’s OUR Planet. Isn’t it about time we learned to share it, as well as the technologies we have developed to make renewable hydrogen. Solar production of hydrogen to fuel our vehicles is the only way to save us long into the future. Wars over the black death that oil is, won’t get us anywhere.
