The world yells in another uproar
Another environmental tragedy has occurred once more.
As it has swallowed one more toxic pill,
we learn of yet another oil spill.
While the people ask for aid to repair the lives that the oil tore,
their politician’s re-election day is not for 5 years more.
Thus, nothing shall come but thoughts and prayers from Capitol Hill.
Their inaction caused from their donors, not from their lack of power nor will.
Nevertheless, the oil continues to pour.
Covering waterfowl who seek refuge on the shore.
This could all be solved with a congressional relief bill.
Yet the local environment is as clean as an overflowing landfill.
Where is the hope for making sure our world does not become an eyesore?
As clearly, we are unable to protect the environment at our front door.
A mountain they say, we have made of this environmental anthill.
Tell that to the families of the people they kill.
