Canuting Renewable Energy

Canuting Renewable Energy

King Canute was a silly old coot
When his power he planned to be showing,
With the help of his church he would stand on the beach
Tell the waters: “You gotta stop flowing.”

Fossil fuel kings, and their money church pals
Now stand on the energy shore,
To the sun and the wind and the heat of the earth
They proclaim: “We’ll permit just a bit but no more.”

Canute’s quirky play, to control ocean waves
Just reflected his times’ power thinking,
Today (nothing new) fossil fuel’s power crew
Think their gaming can stop their own shrinking.
