Racketeers Ransacking Rainforests

Seven years a trillion dollars,
Cutthroat business levelling Mother,
Twenty-five thousand banks,
Rinsed pressed laundered,
Planetary extinction fast-tracked!

One hundred fifty-two billion illegal log dollars,
Transcontinental oragnised FAT crime,
Lotta bank paper annually,
Gleeful pensions shareholders directors,
Homeless wildlife deadly silence,
Mother’s imperative climate stabilising native forest obliterated!

Amazon Congo Indo/Malayan oxygen pagodas,
Unrepeatable verdant dripping complexities,
Ruined defiled stolen:
Democratic Republic Congo Cambodia Brazil,
Bolivia Peru Laos Indonesia Malaysia Thailand,
Vietnam Ukraine Russia Liberia Sierra Leone.
Ninety per cent illegally razed!
Dozens thousands vessels trafficking conflict timbers:
China India EU Japan US Canada destinations.

COP26 Glasgow corrupt dawdlers,
Pleas halting forest looting,
Twenty thirty, one point two trillion shameless laundry-dollars to go!
Impending civilisation collapse,
Carefree broiling earthbound life into oblivion,
Bankers’ balances flush.
