Poem: Oil Slick

Drill baby drill
oh what a thrill
oil slick
prize dick
“Give me my life back!”
A punch in the belly, and give him the sack.

Against them let us rail
then send the lot to work in jail
they kill the sea for the holy dollar
lucky we don’t give them a rope for a collar
who is to blame – both company and state
we better wake up and take back our fate
