Reclamation  Empty Reclamation

Fish breathe oxygen from the water and we from the air.
For us to pollute both seems to me to be quite unfair.
The things we protested before are still happening, worse
Now than ever with the deep well drilling in our back yards
And digging for coal, clear-cut and the mountain top removed.
Oh these industrious humans, must we all be reproved?
The magnates need their fortunes; the workers need each day’s hire.
To think otherwise is as to say Shake Well and then Stir.

We mustn’t forget the fish, a Red Snapper for dinner,
With a bright Chianti perhaps. Maybe something finer?
I am lulled to sleep by the oil pump outside my window,
And some nights I awake to three fracking blasts in a row,
Third shift at the surface mine breaking up ground for the coal.
I dream and hope when they’re done they put in a park and pool.
