Song for our negotiators

13 Dec

This is cross-posted from the UK Youth Delegation to Copenhagen blog

So here I am, sitting in plenary
With you, our negotiators, sitting in front of me.
Talks offtrack, this is whack, are you taking it seriously?
But it’s alright for you cos you’ll be dead in 2050.

It’s alright for you with your nice family,
Your hotel room for free with a colour tv.

It’s alright for you, so at ease with 4 degrees.
Shrug your shoulders and blame it on the political breeze.

It’s alright for you, you’ve achieved your dream,
Best mates with Ed and Gordon, you’re in the A team.

But I’d like a quick word, cos this is absurd.
The talks at Copenhagen resemble a great, steaming turd…

What about responsibility?
What about your ability to help protect the fundamental rights of humanity?
What about my right to choose to have a family?
Oh yeah, I forgot, you’ll be dead in 2050.

You’ll be dead in 2050
So maybe that’s why
When confronted with the science you just close your eyes.

You’ll be dead in 2050
So maybe you don’t care
You choose not to see our fists raised up in the air.

You’ll be dead in 2050
So maybe you have no fear
But let me remind you, I’ll still be here.
