‘Well, I’m sorry our holiday was ruined
And all our luggage was lost.
And the flames were really hot.
But it’s all added to our costs.
I’m sorry the fields are burnt cinder black
And the crops no longer grow.
I’m sorry the clean water’s gone.
And the forests are all aglow.
I’m sorry that no one warned us!
Although some people really did try.
I’m sorry when I hear the children crying,
‘Why, why, why?’
I’m sorry their future now looks so bleak,
And the fish and birds are dying.
With the planet all on fire.
I know who was lying!
I’m sorry for the part I played,
I thought we would be all right.
But the rivers have all flooded
And now they are full of shite.’
