It’s Happening Now!

The gibbons are leaping, the lizards are creeping:

It’s happening now!

The mushrooms are growing, the wild flowers sowing:

It’s happening now!

The lions are mating, the whales are migrating:

It’s happening now!

A mayfly is dancing, an antelope prancing:

It’s happening now!

 
 

BUT the jungles are shrinking, the rivers are stinking:

It’s happening now!

The rhinos are dying, the traders are buying:

It’s happening now!

The weather is warming, the oil slicks are forming:

It’s happening now!

The soils are eroding, reactors exploding:

It’s happening now!

 
 

BUT the statesmen are meeting, the arguments heating:

It’s happening now!

The press are debating, the public donating:

It’s happening now!

Protesters are daring, and children are caring:

It’s happening now!

The people are fighting, the world is uniting:

It’s happening now!
