Swanlike and white

The windfarm is coming the future is bright,
The green generation to light up the night,
No pollution from chimneys or flare stacks so bright,
Just the sight of the windmills, swanlike and white.

Our coffers will be full with the aid of the Viking,
This is something that we all should be liking,
Tourists will come to see a windfarm so striking,
What ever the rhetoric from sustainable’s syking.

Let’s harness the power of the tide and the wave,
Build turbines in bridges make nature our slave,
Thoughtless objectors should learn to behave,
We should do all we can we’ve a planet to save.

We’ll still have the otter, the dunter and lark,
We’ll all have green power to see in the dark,
Shetland will be our green national park,
If we say no to green power the future is stark.

Gordon Harmer
