FOR THE SAKE OF THE PLANET
We don't use heating in the day because the climate's mild.
Although it gets cool in the night and we like the blankets piled.
Sixteen or seventeen degrees, that's our daytime norm,
And when the days a sunny one it can really feel quite warm.
But when the evening shadows fall (now, don't I sound poetic!)
We'll say 'We're in for an early night', trying to sound prophetic.
There's little point in heating-up the whole house for we two,
So, after supper, here's an inkling of the things we do.
We switch-on the electric-blanket until it's really snug,
And then we take some chocolates and our coffee in a mug,
And we lie in bed in splendour, reading comfortably!
Now tell me, just how decadent can any person be?
Maybe it's just
seven o'clock! We take no note of time;
If it's cold it's time for bed! And isn't it sublime!
Now you may think our attitude entirely hedonistic,
But we approach the matter on the lines of a statistic.
Just think of all the greenhouse gas were saving, just we two!
Now don't you think that our approach is what everyone should do!
Don't let me hear any snide remarks re geriatric impropriety!
We should get a Nobel Prize for considering society!
