Net-Zero

 

Ottawas making a big promise

a really, Really, REALLY BIG

promise that by the year twenty-fifty

the nation of Canada will be at net-zero

just thinking about it makes me giddy

the clean water, the clear skies, the …

 

… the … oh … but … wait …

 

… if my waste begins at my first breath

wouldnt net-zero mean anothers doesnt

and not just doesnt, is the opposite of me

if we have no alternative but to make waste

how does it work that the Earth does not?
