Impossible targets - The stark reality
(A pessimistic view) by Stella M. Turk MBE

Give up the urge to roam!
Enjoy staying at home!
Stand still and stare!
Never travel by air!
When possible try to bar
Journeying by motor car
And try to refrain
From using the train
And never vote
For a fast speedboat!
Use foot or pedal or sail
And you won't entail
Any gas, coal or oil
Whilst enjoying healthy toil
Cars and planes
Fast boats and trains
Will continue to increase
And we'll grow more obese
For we've invoked a natural curse
- Climate changing for the worse.

Stellas notes:

It is easy for me to talk as I have a predilection to staying at home! Nevertheless it seems wise to adopt the wartime motto 'Is your journey really necessary'.
