That To Many Ignorance Is Bliss - Poem by Francis Duggan

That to many ignorance is bliss does that seem fair to say
Since despite the Worldwide climate change we live in the usual way
We still burn environmentally harmful fuels for that I'm also to blame
What's been happening to our Natural Environment is to Humanity's shame
Governments spending trillions to bolster the sagging economies yet to the Natural Environment Governments are not a friend
We can survive on a depressed economy but on Nature our survival depend
If the Governments spent trillions on Natural energy and on carbon emissions cut back
Then Mother Earth may become far healthier when not under pollutant attack
And a healthy Earth means healthier people we have our priorities wrong
Mother Earth is not for us to destroy since to Mother Earth we belong
If job creation means more carbon emissions then to hell with job creation I say
If we continue to live the way we live we are on the self destruction way
Governments spending trillions in money on the faltering economies more pollution we are trying to create
For to save ourselves from self destruction one can say it is never too late.
