Kyoto Treaty
eljota

It happened some time ago, back in Kyoto
 1
A momentous gathering in a nice place to go
 2
The bureaucrats and left wingers were swarming
 3
To take on the topic of (gasp) global warming.
 4
 
 
The usual suspects were all there in force
 5
The Greens, the Luddites and Commies, of course.
 6
They hoped that by tapping the first world’s guilt
 7
They might feather their nest with some gold crazy quilt.
 8
 
 
It takes a brief a look at the Communist east
 9
To see where the rapists of Earth REALLY feast
 10
The west with its capital large and small
 11
Has efficiency, production, and cleanliness, all
 12
 
 
It’s true that per capita, the West uses more
 13
But what is produced comes out with a roar.
 14
China and India are exempted from Kyoto
 15
With Capitalist West shackled head to toe.
 16
 
 
So the world wants to kill the golden goose.
 17
Freedom, commerce setting technology loose
 18
Those lefties are simply envious wankers.
 19
Hating us all like we hate our bankers.
