There was an old woman who lived in a shoe
Summer was environmentally friendly; she knew just what to do
She cycled to work and recycled her garbage; she grew organic veggies
In short the woman who lived in a shoe did whatever it took to be a good green citizen
Summer honoured Earth Hour, crocheted string bags and eschewed gas producing meat
On the other hand she produced ten gas guzzling children who consumed earths limited resources
Each child had ten children of his own. That’s ten squared plus ten

  1. I am still chuckling. I love that. I admit we recycle. We have containers in the garage. It keeps me busy, even though I tend to make the hubby take them to the place. It does save on what goes in the container since there is only one. We try to turn lights off when not in use but again we like our TVs on at night. πŸ™‚ I guess we save and yet we don’t.

    • I can’t see saving the planet happening in our lifetime. It’s a curious human trait not to want to give up what it has got used to. Imagine no computer or any of the ipods/ipads/iphones that also rely on electricity to work. Someone is going to have to invent something that will allow us to keep it all.

    • No, it’s not easy, but I think it’s because everyone has their own idea of what constitutes green. For example, I don’t see the point of Earth Hour, because sixty minuites later we’re all switching our electricals on. πŸ™‚
