We honour ANZAC day
We remember the wartime dead
not only because of their courage
but because we long to believe
that we would do the same
Fight selflessly for our children
to willingly sacrifice whatever it takes
The climate is changing
so fast, too fast for us to adapt
This strange new enemy
is of our very own making
Who will we allow to call us to arms?
When will our heroism begin?
How far do things need to go
before we finally acknowledge that
it will take all of us pulling with all our might
When will sacrifice once again
become the noblest of virtues?
