State of the water

After last night’s state of the union speech, I was pulled to compose this piece.

Thanks, Mr. President.



Our waters are strong

our shores ready for jobs

we pledge to open our waters

for more drilling,

.     more spoilage,

.     more fire,

.     more chemical dumping–

we pledge to make

Sunoco and Exxon,

BP and Shell,

Halliburton and Chevron

more profitable, to put America

back to work.

Our strong waters are open

to the drill.  We stand,

feet firm on these stolen soils,

and proclaim, we are bigger

than the ocean–
