Fracking Poem Number 13

Doesn't want you to know

Big Gas plays Geppetto

to his Pinocchio.

Fracking Poem Number 12

People like to wager

In Vegas or in Reno.

But who'd frackin' gamble

On Carl Paladino?

Fracking Poem Number 11

According to the gas crowd's catechism

The Clean Water Act is Socialism

Any attempt at regulation

Is Stalinism, an abomination.

Do they find their religion

in churches? On their knees? In the pews?

No, they're high on the gospel

of Talk Radio and Fox News.

Not to get too technical (about stuff like hydrology)

But clean water is too sacred

to sacrifice on the altar of extremist ideology.

While the news may not seem poetic or quotable,

Fracking Poem Number Nine

(The Super Fun) SuperFund Site Song!

(sung to the tune of the Wheels on the Bus go 'round and 'round)

We'll All Be Living in A SuperFund Site

SuperFund Site

SuperFund Site

We'll All Be Living in A SuperFund Site

If "Friends" of Natural Gas Have their way.

Dimmock Pennsylvania is a toxic mess

Toxic Mess

Toxic Mess

Dimmock Pennsylvania is a toxic mess

And they say it's heading our Way!

We're all going to stop it in the voting booth

Voting Booth

Voting Booth

'Cause they've got the money but we've got the truth

And that's what carries the day!
