I shall arise and go now and plant myself a seed,
A tribute to our feathered friends, many hues and breeds
We need arm ourselves with tools for following the creed,
It is high time we made a move against corporate greed
Creatures are disappearing at an alarming rate
Should we just all sit back and leave them to their sad fate?
Too late, I have heard some say—time to start was yesterday!
What we need here is guidance, could someone point the way?
Someone of integrity, with mind like a rocket
Who will serve for good of all, be in no-one’s pocket
Someone who will inspire us to even greater deeds;
we need many such someone(s) in order to succeed
Those weeds insidious creeping rampant o’er our land,
began life on foreign shores before they made a stand
Our own native plants lie dormant, choking in the dust,
victims of our gluttony, our greed and abject lust
Let’s rise and make a stand, take up tools to rid the land
of damned invasive predators—rise and lend a hand!
Let’s help preserve our wildlife, before it is too late
Make our land a vibrant haven, surely that must rate!
