SCENARIO 1: NUCLEAR POWER -SCENARIO 2: WIND POWER by Julia Patten

SCENARIO 1: NUCLEAR POWER
If nuclear power’s the star of the hour
Where do we dump the waste?
Near some big city, or village so pretty?
Don’t make this decision in haste.
Leaving it here for offspring to fear
Is nothing short of a crime.
What will they do if a terrorist crew
Attacks it in their lifetime?

SCENARIO 2: WIND POWER

Tall white turbines soar above
While folk beneath are forced to cower.
Across our land this dreary band
Gives constant drone but not much power.
Fanning blades, long shadows cast.
They blight our fresh green countryside.
Mighty towers that dwarf sunflowers
May soon be seen from each roadside.
Once our fields are used, abused,
When every metre bears a steeple,
We’ll have to go far, far away
And find a place with room for people.
