I'd rather leave my kids clean air than money, but the Aussie Prime Minister doesn't agree with me. He seems to think it's it's all a conspiracy theory!

GLOBAL WHAT?

 

You can't breathe money.

It just isn't funny

that global warming

does not sound

a warning

to you.

You just don't get it,

John.

 

"Our economy's strong."

That's the name

 of the song

you sing in the shower.

"So screw solar power!"

You just don't get it,

John.

 

"Kyoto's a joke.

I won't trade our smoke.

Soon coal will get cleaner,

and that other word...

greener?"

You just don't get it,

John.

 

"The Greens

 will make us all  poor;

so I'll just shut the door

on their  ravings.

It's perfectly clear

their leader is queer."

You just don't get it,

John.


"Our economy's strong.

So what can go wrong?

The future looks rosy."

Of course so does

the sky,

but you've no idea

 why.

You just don't get it,

John
