A Big Pinch of Salt!

“Sustainable” sure is a mightly long word

Politicians just love it – or that's what I've heard

It's an easy quick way to seem quite “green”

Too bad if it's just mostly pipe dream


Our future depends on what we now call “waste”

It's your only resource on a planet floating in space

Just remember this now - when you flush the loo

You're filling our rivers with fresh pee and pooh


In bountiful nature there is nothing called`”waste”

The magic cycle of life means it's all replaced

Beasts, bugs and fungi all do daily toil

That's why we should worship good healthy soil


Many vital skills we now need to learn

To live without the fuel we all love to burn

Composting and bio-gas are top of my list

But somehow this truth has just been missed


So I take the “sus” word with a big pinch of salt

They've got good intentions and it's not their fault

Being creatures of a culture which is built on predation

Prevents their undertanding nature's magic creation
