Is It Warm In Here?

Is It Warm In Here?

Is it warm in here, or is it me?
I used to live inland
and couldn’t see the sea,
now the salty brine
is up above my knees.
Is it warm in here, or is it me?

Is it warm in here, or is it you?
Polar bears are sunbathing.
Penguins don’t know what to do
because all the ice has gone
along with the igloos.
is it warm in here, or is it you?

Is it warm in here, or is it them?
The Indians and Chinese
causing fossil fuel mayhem,
clouding up the skies
and we’re all quick to condemn.
Is it warm in here, or is it them?

Is it warm in here, or is it us?
The politicians tell us
that we mustn’t make a fuss,
the scientists are keeping mum,
they don’t want to discuss
is it warm in here or is it us?

Really like this Ian.
A friend and I recently bemoaned the lack of protest songs/poems as per the late '60's. You could almost sing this. Top work, well done.
