Speak Canary

It’s like the canary in the coal mine

What’s good for birdies is great for us

Eagles food chain starts with salmon

And

Salmon need to survive from stream to sea and back to spawn

Borrowers

Neither A Borrower or A Lender be .

Borrowers

Co-operators

Lawyers

Accountants

People who make money from other peoples’ misery

People who are not feeling like singing like a canary

The canary in the coal mine runs out of air

People run out of mercy, run out of money

Feel choked

There are people looking desperately for a reason

Not to destroy

Not to clear cut n build

People want to hear the canary singing

So they know all is well

We can keep the canary singing

We can stop the plans to clear cut n build

We can stop the plans to kill and fill

There are just plans

They just not the right plans

For those of us

Who want to keep the canary singing

There are lines on maps

Lines that have not been put into effect

Lines that have not resulted in killing and filling more of the estuary

Lines that have not resulted in clear cutting precious forest and building on waterfront in the path of the river, on the waters’ edge to block the light and the view and park boats where there is estuary so someone can live next to their boat even if it stops the singing of the canaries

When we don’t hear the canaries singing we know we are in serious trouble

Clear cutting results in a loss of air and moisture

The canary loses its’ home

Then there’s no singing

Our days are numbered

Unless we keep those canaries singing.
