Stop the clocks, planetary version

Spread the love

Stop all the clocks, put away your mobile phone

Take a good look at your loved ones

Silence the noise and think for a moment

Take heed of the fact, this world is done.

 

Note the aeroplanes with jetplumes,

Tracing white lines in a bright sky

The stars and the planets whose beauty belies

The fact our home will soon be gone.

 

It is our north, south, our east and west,

Our place of birth, our place of rest,

Your source of all eternity, and so much beauty

We thought the world would last forever: we were wrong.

 

The planet will not last long now, with what we’ve done

Behold the sun, the moon the stars,

We’ve poisoned the ocean and burned up the woods

And seize what chance to try to save what’s good.
