Capitalism is killing the planet.
We should all rise up and ban it!
A system based on wealth and greed
Is really not what we need.
Clawing up the earth chopping down the trees
Bringing the planet down to its knees.
There has to be a better way than this
For us all to co-exist.
Accumulating stuff and throwing it away
Without a thought for the very next day.
Sixty per cent of everything has already gone.
Something, surely tells us this is wrong.
There has to be a better way
For us to live together and be OK.
We’re killing all the creatures stealing their homes
To fill our front yard with garden gnomes.

They cut all the trees on the embankment to do Johnson’s Garden Bridge that never happened, didn’t they?
