Christmas Competition: Promoting ‘Terminally Green’

Oh, let us be, eventually, recycled,

Let us be with nature quite serene,

In a cardboard box,

To feed our hollyhocks,

Let us be quite terminally green.

 

Oh, let us be eventually recycled,

Don’t let us be like some old plastic bag,

If we should become quite ill,

Don’t put us in landfill,

We can’t be an environmental drag.

 

Oh, let us be eventually recycled,

We’ll stop this global warming in a trice,

Carbon footprints left behind?

That’s not what’s on our mind,

We want to be environmentally nice.

 

Oh, let us be eventually recycled,

Cremated compost is our Lib Dem green ideal,

Eco-friendly our demise,

Let Greenpeace eulogise,

And Copenhagen be our final seal.

    It’s only because I couldn’t find any words to rhyme with ‘Brexit’ 🙂

    I have to agree with David here. Cremation adds to greenhouse gases; natural burial is the way forward for those with green ideals: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Natural_burial

    As we are an island, perhaps the easiest answer is burial at sea.
