Oil and the Rising Tides

OIL

Taste the rainbow

Oh no

I will pass

Rainbow translucent

On rain soaked street

My contribution

To this pollution

Solution

To skittle

On two feet

Down the street

And Repeat

 

MORE OIL

Our shores are well oiled thanks to BP

86 days of crude

Is a crude ways to kill the landscape

And sea life that couldn’t take

2.94 million gallons

7000 barrels per day

 

A NEW DAWN

At dawn

They sing heavenly songs

but

Little birds can’t get up to the heavens

Before being doused with Dawn

Lathered up and washed down

Freeing their fine down feathers

So they are free to soar

 

Rising Tides

Two sides collide

Across the land

We see things rapidly happening

Change is at hand

Trees shake at the roots

Men shake in their boots

From one side to the other

At Home

Overseas

Things are rough

Colliding sides

Changing tides

Reach ever widening

Sending rushing tides

Past the lines

Where land and ocean meet

Sending tides of human lives

Rushing into streets

Tunisia, New Zealand, Wisconsin, Japan

In Libya, and Algeria,

Change is at hand

Colliding sides

Changing tides

Reach ever widening

Sending rushing tides

Past the lines where land and ocean meet

Sending tides of human lives

Rushing into streets

 

Rising Concerns

Power releasing

Energy increasing

Cooling system not decreasing

Evacuation

Empty town

Promises of safety

Empty sound

Plugged in society temporarily disconnected

Joined by souls watching a world away

Frightened families fighting fatigue

Unaware of danger looming nearby
