Gas Prices Are Killing Me - Poem by Dwayne Bailey

Gas prices are killing me,
taking so much of my pay;
So I can have just the basics,
like getting to work each day.
Forget about taking a vacation,
or traveling the open sea;
At $3.25 a gallon,
home is where I'll have to be.
Why dos'nt our goverment do something?
like stand up for what is right;
Stop letting the OPEC contries,
Place oil prices out of sight.
Set a price thats fair,
refuse to pay anymore;
If they dont like our price,
their oil they can store.
We need to explore more options,
and look to the future with care;
We need to find alernate energies,
that our planet can bare.
In turn we could tell these nations,
we no longer need you goodbye;
We've found a way to be self supporting,
And your oil we'll no longer buy.

    I have always subscribed to a 'let them eat sand' philosophy, that is no money spent where it may support terrorism. If we would fully fund research and development of alternate energy sources we could let them 'drink their oil' as well. (Report)Reply
