Can The Majority Afford It? - Poem by Christina Sunrise

Raise the gas prices

up to the sky,

Bury the electric

Car that you let die,

Die in Michigan

while selling it’s life,

to a big oil co. deep

in the night.

Now why have

the people pay?

For sending an eco-

friendly to the grave?

Now watch “Who

Killed the Electric Car”

It will tell you every-

thing thus far.

Maybe there is hope,

but it will cost so much


Why it’s expensive

beyond belief,

It’s the new

Nissan Leaf.

33 thousand is not

my cup of tea,

will the majority

afford it or let it

Sink in the Sea?
