my flat mate gemma
has become a right little
eco warrior
she’s gonna write
to our MP tomorrow
ask him questions about
landfill and fossil fuels
and do we need more runways
more motorways
green belt building
nuclear power stations
she wants to know
if his vision
is of a concrete nation

i didn’t know you could do that
you know
write to yer MP
and ask him stuff
so i’m gonna write
‘cos i wanna find out
why the cosmetics industry
has this strange obsession
to make shower gels
and hair conditioners
with a spunk like resemblance
