“Lights Out” By Viv Forbes (words) and Steve Hunter (illustrations)


 
For yonks they waged a war on coal
 And painted miners black;
 They threw explorers on the dole
 And shut the gates outback.

The land was closed to oil and gas
 And nukes were always banned;
 While wind and sun got all the brass
 And uglified the land.

 

Poles and turbines all in ranks
 Sprouted on the hills;
 The carbon credits pleased the banks
 And households got the bills.
 

 Then all the factories fled offshore
 As puny power flickered;
 More jobs were lost for evermore
 As politicians dickered.
 

 Then one still night the lights went out
 And blackouts stalked the land;
 The pollies quickly turned about
 And Greens were spurned and banned.
