Tides Of Excess



So I can replicate the electricity bill in an
Excel spread-sheet – bully for me; there’s
due sense of success, the figures agree
their calculus of cryptic extension – ‘tho
veiled in disbelief that I’ve accomplished
anything in reality. So I know how power
generated in our solar panels accredits,
the figures do agree, bonus’s do accrue

But there is no way I am convinced it is
truly saving the planet from overheating
or worse, sinking into the morass of our
blessed overindulgent-beliefs; so I just
can’t see carbon futures weighing true
to the tides of excess we’re navigating
