“Run for a Safe Climate”

The Sunday Age, 26 July 2009

 

The Fire Fighters
Are ready
For the Long Run

From the wet tropics and the Great Barrier Reef
To the Australian Alps, Murray-Darling
Basin, and river red gums

Past natural icons under threat
Together they tended the dead

They don't want families to go through that!

In a life-or-death race against time, they can't afford
To sit on their hands, they were searching for survivors
In the ash and the grey … fifteen kilometres a day,
Six thousand kilometres in the relay,

The fires they were fighting were unstoppable.

Run, run! For a safe climate!

(After Jas H Duke's No, no! You can't do that!)

Run Run For a safe climate
Run Run, for a safe climate
Run, for a safe climate!
Run run run run run run,
For a safe climate!

Run, run run run run run run run run,
For a safe climate
Run run run run run run run,
For a safe climate
Run! Run! For a safe climate!
Run! For a safe safe climate!

Run, for a safe climate!
Run, for a SAFE CLIMATE
Run run run run run run run!
For a safe climate!
RUN! RUN! RUN! RUN!
For a safe climate!

RUN! For a safe climate!
Run, run run run run run run run run!
For a safe climate!
Run! Run! Run! Run! Run!
Run, for a safe climate!
Run, for a safe climate!

Run! For a safe climate!
Run, for a safe climate
Run, run run run run run run run,
For a safe safe safe climate!
Run! Run! Run run run! For a safe climate!

Run! Run run run, for a safe climate!
Run! Run! Run! Run! Run! For a safe climate!
Run, run run run run run run run run!
For a safe climate!
Run, for a safe climate!

Run, run! For a safe climate!
Run, run! For a safe climate!
