The United Nations in Orbit

Ambassadors from round the globe Will don a diplomatic robe, And to the great Assembly Hall Today will make a service call To raise their voices in debate On Mother Earth’s eternal fate.

The plan calls for the world to sign A treaty that will make divine Our Pachamama (Mother Earth – For those who suffer from a dearth Of education on the gods Of Andes and enviro-squads).

The plan, as point of trivia, Was hatched down in Bolivia, Which hopes the world will soon be chained To living standards they’ve attained By granting equal rights in law To She who orbits sun god Ra.

When once these rights are well enshrined All Western countries will be fined At twice their yearly GDP If they should harvest from the sea, Or drill for oil, build a dam Or have been known as Uncle Sam.

And when the world economy Is left in tatters and debris, Our friends who hearken from La Paz Will cheer the triumph of their cause; And having made the whole world poor, They’ll star in films by Michael Moore.

If you want futher information: Bolivia will soon pass the world’s first Law of Mother Earth. The Guardian reports on what this historic law could mean in practice.

http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2011/apr/10/bolivia-enshrines-natural-worlds-rights

The Law is based on a proposal put forward in October 2010, drafted with grassroots participation from Bolivia's five main social movements who collectively represent over three million people. The Bolivian Climate Change Platform provided technical support. The Platform is led by the Secretaries of Natural Resources of the social movements, along with technical support from Bolivian NGOs and funding from International NGOs.
