Stick To The Facts!

Greta once told the Chinese, “Cease,
Using chopsticks, save trees, bring peace!”
With a plea to protect the green,
Her words left folks somewhat keen.

The Chinese replied with a cheer,
“Dear Greta, let's make something clear.
Chopsticks are bamboo, not trees,
And bamboo is just grass, if you please.”

They asked her and Fridays For Future,
To find a new green kind of nurture
“Stop using toilet paper instead,
Or real trees will face doom,” they said.

So Greta learned a thing or two,
Not all that’s green is quite so true.
