THE DOG POO FAIRY
(written 2017/recorded 2017)



see the dog poo lying in the meadow
see the fuel rod lying in the cool pond
(it's dirty all around)

see expired pills lying in the kitchen sink
see the plastic bag floating in the ocean
(it's dirt that lies all around)

we love, we love to produce all that shit
without asking
without asking ourselves beforehand
how to depollute it later
depollute it later

there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy
there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy
there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy
there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy

scrap motorcars rusting in the car dump
battery acid spills trickle into the soil
(it's dirty all around)

a million wrecks at the bottom of the ocean
each a flowing oil well bubbling up like a boil
(it's dirt that lies all around)

see the white foam poisoning the river
electronic scrap poisoning the children
(it's dirty all around)

toxic smother from the cars and trucks and chimney stacks
a pall of smog on the world as a whole
(it's dirt that lies all around)

more and more, it's getting more all the time
all we can do is just a drop in a bucket
(it's dirty all around)

all the fetor and all the putrid slime
hell, where's the carpet to sweep it all under
(it's dirt that lies all around)

we love, we love to produce all that shit
without asking
without asking ourselves beforehand
how to depollute it later
depollute it later

there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy
there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy
there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy
there's no such thing as the dog poo fairy

sea and soil and air
it's a sad nightmare
and we give them just a stare
we're unable to
no, unwilling to
overlook the consequences of what we do

there's no such thing as the fuel rod fairy
there's no such thing as the plastic bag fairy
there's no such thing as the white foam fairy
there's no such thingy as the dog poo fairingy
