When will the Penny drop?
On the road to Copenhagen will the minister fall out of her limo?
and get wise to the blindingly obvious
and on her white bicycle towards a sustainable future?
If only she could
be more than a suit among suits
snoring by the trough of business as usual
and rise to
ring the changes
to align our standard of living
with the wisdom of the first Australians and Buddha and Christ
and that skinny spinning bespectacled lawyer Gandhi Ji
who the great politician Churchill saw as barely human.
If only she would stop
being clever and savvy and smart
and be a fool for Gaia.
