New TCBH! Poem: Mister Fracker and America go for a walk one day

By dlindorff - Posted on 28 December 2013

Fracker: It’s just over there on the other side of these trees.

America: What’s that noxious odor I smell upon the breeze?


F: That smell is giving away the surprise.

A: Oh, well, I’ll just close my eyes.


F: See? We pump all this crap into the well

and out comes gas, which we sell.


A: Does this industry make jobs for Maggie and Josh?

F: Good American kids will do “Anything for cash.”


A: Will we be sickened by the chemicals we drink?

F: Not if we don’t see them. What do you think!


A: I’m looking at all those pipes and tanks and flat-bed trucks.

F: Basically it all just injects and sucks…
