They laugh at her and the Green New Deal
They deny, deflect, dissect piecemeal
Tucker Carlson calls her “moron”
They mock, malign, yak, or yawn
She was a bartender, “Ha!” She’s just a girl,’
“Wants to take your cows! And cars! And world!”
Healthcare or jobs, THESE are issues more pressing
Lead in water, black lung, tech jobs? — not worth addressing
Jobs that pollute, that’s our proud tradition,
Lab meat, living biosphere? Unrealistic ambition.
She’s not on State News, she’s hardly a pro
She’s an everyday person, a regular Joe
We “nobodies” Each of us — not a millionaire,
What right have we to clean water, or air?
