Waste Wood, Waste Paper

Scandal, libel, capers,
In the daily papers...

Tits on page 3,
Who slept with whom,
Who did what when,
What X thought of Y,
TV page,
More tits,
Gossip column,
Business page:
Who’s making loadsamoney in the City,
What shares to buy,
Which ones to sell,
Horoscope,
More gossip,
Even more tits...

For things like these
We tear down trees.
