Gasholes

Water, water everywhere

Yet no thirst for to slake

Seller warned buyer beware

The wise thus won’t partake

Awful things are dumped in there

To hasten the earthquake

Into the water and the air

Clear blue becomes opaque

People drinking unaware

Pollutants they intake

Thinking and vision impair

The head and stomachache

Bile of the billionaire

More loss for profit’s sake

Harbinger of our despair

Behold the toxic lake

Power derives from gasholes

Beneath the Earthen crust

The powerful are assholes

Unworthy of our trust

Power devising class roles

To remain undiscussed

The powerful are assholes

Worthy of our disgust

From Earth we were emitted

Into Earth we’re received

Of Earth we’ve benefitted

Its resources we’ve thieved

As robbers quite dim-witted

The heist is ill-conceived

Against vast forces pitted

Dead falls are unperceived

The payoff counterfeited

The payout not retrieved

With pay off crimes admitted

With pay outs to aggrieved

Atrocities committed

Despair again achieved

As killers are acquitted

Their debt is thus relieved

Up against the well mother fracker

Suck the toxic smell Earth attacker

Choking coffers swell ink is blacker

Stoke the fires of Hell life hijacker

Power derives from gasholes

Beneath the Earthen crust

The powerful are assholes

Unworthy of our trust

Power fills up vast holes

While home faucets combust

Power perverted assholes

And boom degrades to bust
