This Must Be Stopped!



Chicxulub Redux

The oil
it is spewing
gallon after gallon
ton after ton gushing
into those clear aqua blue regions
as I write this
week after week
every second
for the last month and maybe
a few more --
I have seen the end
of life
billowing red-brown
the thick of it and I am
beyond anger beyond
grief
having only these powerless
words

This must be stopped and
those responsible can never
pay enough -- these greed driven
mega-criminals this
monstrous system of death
its corruption killing
everything

It must end
We must end it
Time is running out.

-- Al Markowitz
