Say Yes in Copenhagen

For climate activists around the world, check out the video poem Say Yes from poet-activist Andrea Gibson. I'd love to send it as a message to all the delegates and leaders in Copenhagen. Here's a taste:

play like there's no time for hoping brighter days will come
play like the apocalypse is only 4...3...2
but you have a drum in your chest that could save us
you have a song like a breath that could raise us
like the sunrise into a dark sky that cries to be blue
play like you know we won't survive if you don't
but we will if you do
play like saturn is on his knees
proposing with all of his ten thousand rings
that we give every single breath
this is for saying-yes

this is for saying-yes
