Energy Independence

Nancy P.
And Harry Reid
Have a record to defend
As they ascend
To joining with Obama
In a troika
Where they control
All the levers new and old.

Smashing the Republic,
Which indeed is sick
Will come about
As they lead the rout
Of Capitalism
In its war against Communism.

Then they will ensure
That the 'Welfare State' will endure
Any attempts to correct
Mistakes that voters try to forsake.
By seating judges that are known
For Left-leaning on their own.

So while we view the exercise
In correcting 'Government' wise
Problems in energy allocation
Congress will never give attention
To development of coal to gas
As the answer that should come to pass.

While they worry about what will be
With no assurance they can see
Into the future any better than
Any other man,
They insist that the only solution
Is to stop Carbon Dioxide pollution
Knowing not that they endanger
Survival of our Nation by their wager.

If our children and theirs to come
Are destined to survive this Holocaust of nonsense by some
Then now is the time to act
And put the Nation back on track
To be energy independent from all
Those that seek our downfall!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson

The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
