leave the damn sand hills alone…

i must make
a disclosure
i lived in
and
love
nebraska
so my feelings
about tar sand

to say what i say
like a certain blond
i saw recently
on my computer screen
expounding upon
how
improved national security
and
jobs galore
would be pouring
into the country
because of our good neighbor
to the north
she was obviously
not from nebraska
where common sense
is prerequisite for existence
since she failed
to discuss

advantages
from leaks
in the transcanada pipeline
for example
she didn’t talk
about the cheap fuel
that would be readily
available from
every drinking water tap
nor the preoiled critters
that would be available
at meal time
thus
saving a preparation step
no
she just
rambled on into
the abyss
of marketing greed
leaving me
with a mouthful
of oily canada sand
