Tom Dobinson, Tweed Heads
Now is the summer of our discontent
Made disastrous by years of culpable denial
This parched land is scorched and ravaged by an inferno of hypocrisy and greed
Lives, livelihoods, dreams, iconic species lost, despite heroic and futile deeds.
The once merry festive season is now a time of apprehension, despair and disbelief.
The sky is red, the air is black, the green bush is aflame and the blue sea is filled with ash and burning embers.
Now because Morrison is duplicitous, conflicted and paralysed by vested interests and right-wing dogmatism
We must be resolute, rebellious and proactive to save the nation from the prophecy of climate doom.
