How Dare You! (poem)

Watch the How dare you! speech

The title of Greta Thunberg’s book of speeches gives good advice to us all. ‘No-one is too small to make a difference’

How Dare You!

How dare you!
Rages Greta. Oh so true
The things we’ll put our children through

What have we been thinking of?
What foolishness is this?
Expecting the young to lead the way
Expecting them to save the day

It’s time for grown-ups to grow up
And take responsibility
We made this mess, it’s our bequest
Do children have to do the rest?

We shop till we drop and all our glitter
Is turning into toxic litter
It’s not too late to change our ways
And we must alter, as Greta says
