Making An Example - Poem by Douglas Scotney

We want a better future;
one in which companies
do what they've been given permission to do
and don't go and do otherwise,
thinking they'll get away with it unnoticed,
or be let get away with it,
if noticed.

A company that puts in two nitrogen tanks
beside a neighbour's fence,
when it's been given permission
to put in one well-away from the fence,
should not be let get away with it.
It should be made to do
what it was given permission to do;
for a better future.
