Extinction Rebellion

doomers, preppers
deniers. shleppers
Evangelists, pessimists
Albedo nihillists
technologists, scientists
government defiantists
coolers warmers, street performers
strikers hikers, three wheel trikers
worried farmers, spiritual calmers
theatre actors re-enactors
vegan purists, citizen jurists
political chancers, rebel dancers
quiet quakers and piss takers
life long moaners, chilled out stoners
police informers, perfect stormers
movement jesters, empty nesters
safe space janitors, wild-life monitors
wide awake-ers, sneaky fakers
woodland saviours, strange behaviours
skeleton stagers, old new agers
earth first militants, festival dilettantes
animal righters, class war fighters
nuanced thinkers, radical  tinkers
nuclear backers, pollutant trackers
red robed choirs, end is nigh-ers
new planet settlers, climate mettlers
electric car fans preaching beef bans
guys with blinkers and great thinkers
tiny home-ers, geodesic dome-ers
back to the land-ers, saving pandas
carbon worriers, movement hurriers.
