``Happy Earth Day!''

Happy Earth Day! The oil corporations
Invite you to their ironic celebrations.
Your corporate sponsors are indeed getting green,
The color of cash, from their profits obscene
A sham of environmentalism is such good P.R.
While our ancient growth forests, they cover with tar.

Yell ``Save the Earth!'' while the poison land and sea
A shining example of greed and hypocracy.

Harvest rare trees to build grandfather clocks
But send them to you in a recycled box.

For twenty-four hours, they'll hold Mother Earth dear.
But don't ask what they do the rest of the year.
