Oil rain in Louisiana


earlier this morning
chaos was seen
showering
the greed of men
oil raining down on
a louisiana town

greed is good
give us more
corporate bank accounts
will soar
more capital
to educate the mass
exactly
how fast
can we change
the liquid to gas
and blow ourselves up
apparently
not fast enough

some of the
lighter crude oil
can evaporate
from the soil
into the water cycle
i'm told
and increase profits
ten-fold

why not extend
the invitation
of manifest destiny
to every nation
falling black heaven
for free
