constitution who?

oil buys solar

marketing tricks
consciousness

walmart drains
main street

landmen salt
farmland

into
deadly
pastures,
we gladly go

lobbyists over democracy
secrecy over transparency
state over citizenry

the Marcellus play

bow to it
bend to it
march to it
sleep through it

into the past –
a  mine shaft,

we trundle.

    Says it all
    Took me on a long ride…
    Ended up with Yeats…
    “Turning and turning in the widening gyre”
    Thank You

  2. Thank you for the poem.

    Powerful words on the powerful institutions that dominate our culture – our land – our lives.

    There’s a better way.

    Will we survive long enough to discover that the better way is also the only way?

    contemplation – evaluation – credulous – (think about, weigh the issues, but don’t believe TOO readily) – too many have been blinded by the greed and the wealth promised by the invasion into this beautiful state – what price are we willing to pay for the total destruction of the environment, our water and our future health and well being? WE (every citizen of this state) is entitled to clean water and air – we are (and we will) pay a huge penalty for the mistakes of others unless everyone speaks up, WAKES UP and motivates others to do the same. contact your senators, your representatives, even the President of the USA – we need to once again adopt a “DON’T TREAD ON ME” attitude and do whatever it takes to protect ourselves and the state of PA – nothing more is needed for evil to succeed than for good men to do nothing –
