Logging Rebellion, British Columbia

Edinburgh Mountain’s
Royal Majesties,
Colossals unprotect’d,
Teal Jones, Pacheedaht,

Fairy Creek in peril,
Self-organised networks
Cooperative biological communities:
Eagles, salmon, eel grasses
Regal Ones,
Bank-funded furious
Old-growth obliteration!

Elder Bill Jones
Pacheedaht Nation,
Blessing defiants,
Indigenous Peoples
Accomplices, allies,
Heroic humans!

Message David Eby,
British Columbia’s
Grand Poobah,
End logging Exceptionals!
Indispensable, incomparable
Old-growth rainforests,
Irreplaceable Holy Race.

Oz Prime Minister
‘Frackin’ Albo’
Elected climate tackler,
Three new coal mines
One gargantuan frackin’ field,
Another Mother-loather
Greens governance gladly!
