Fracking

Fracking

stop fracking

 
 
          Holes in the ground            
What can be found? 
 
What’s pulled out?
What’s this all about? 
 
To get from the earth, what they need
They lie to the farmers, because of their greed.
 
They tell them it’s safe, when it’s really not 
They want their gas, and they say there’s a lot.  
 
Farmers get forced to join in the plan
How would they know that it’s bad for their land?
 
If they resist they’ll loose their farm.
They already lost a leg and an arm. 
 
They poison the land, help…STOP! 
Easier for all ?…I think NOT!  
 
It’s bad for the water, bad for the cows,
It’s bad for the crops, in spite of their vows.
 
People getting sick wherever they frack 
Towns go away and never come back
 
They tell big companies, they want them to go
But the farmers are poor and they need the dough.
 
Such a sad state of affairs
Has turned into big, yes, giant, nightmares.
 
If farmers sue, well…lots of luck!
The companys won’t pay, they’ll only duck. 
 
Help the farmers, like they should?
What a dream, if only they would.
