The scientists go marching
While the world is parching
The politicians that ignore the truth
Need a swift kick out the voting booth
The denialists may splutter
But we’ll just have to make them scutter
Else the seas will turn toxic
Leaving us all hypoxic
While it swirls around our knees
Completely unconcerned with our pleas

So stand behind science
As a way to show defiance
Against those who will not think
And would bring us to the brink
Without a single clue
Just for a dollar or two
For there is no worth
One can put on the Earth
So we’d better take care of it
And stop treating it like shit
Because if we don’t take care of our only home
Our species will end up fossilized in the loam

With all our voices silent
After an end so violent
They’ll be no one around to rhyme
Until they evolve back up out of the slime
I’m sure they’ll laugh at our folly
While feeling very jolly
On the warm waters and beaches we left behind
The only lasting legacy of mankind
