The Spill

The Spill

A Poem by Jim Walters

They say the sea is Mothers womb
And all life forms Her children
This oil!
Has man in his learned ignorance
Just performed
The ultimate abortion?

I'm afraid so.

I love poetry like this. I get so much from it. It is brilliant! Absolutely brilliant!

Thank you for saying it out loud.
Now if we could just get people to quit buying the gas and the lies, we'd have em' by the short hairs.
But, I have read some history, and I think once again, it is a matter of care.
Humans don't matter because we don't care.
Directly to my right is an ad, to vote Obama guilty for the spill.
Really. Is anyone that stupid? We the people, that's who is to blame. We have just the govt. we deserve.

Short and sweet. No rhyme at all, but still flows well and feels poetic. I like it.
