It’s easy to smirk at Selena and Miley
They don’t seem to work, and they’re far too smiley.
And when they record a new eco-song,
Who can afford to listen for long?

When tween angels sing, even if the songs blow,
The messages hurled in each sappy chorus
Will help save the world — for the next ones, not for us.
