Fracking, Cancer, And Chemo


Although i'm ill, i try each day
to make something anew
it helps me to ignore the pain
and also not feel blue.
Even though i know that what grows within
keeps busily just snackin'
i have a close relationship with the Earth
as they eat away with frackin'
Into her too they pump the toxic fluids
that poisons all about her
and, would you believe it, to me too.
it's human bloody frackin'.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
