We Win Oil Loses

We Win Oil Loses

The Whitehouse announced that the ACOE will not issue a permit for the DAPL oil pipeline to bore beneath the Missouri River. This is a great victory for the world and a crushing defeat for big oil.

When Kids just Went Sailing

The world is exploding, our systems eroding
The warning signs say that it’s time to go boating
Follow the children and ask if it fits them
to allow us on board the new dawn they bring with them

And as we pass garbage, huge islands of plastic
we’ll do transmutation, make something fantastic!
Put holes in a cocoanut, make it a whale call
Blow through it toward the horizon ’till nightfall

Awake in the morning surrounded by whales
Lifting their flukes to protect us from gales
Each smiling broadly, baleen ten feet wide
Making shrimp scampi from krill, side to side

After the storm, our eyes made out the form
of millions of whales, could this be the new norm?
In whale pod formation, the largest cetacean
signaled with flukes to go back to our nation

With pinpoint precision, a pod of ten million
left the pavilion in a splash of vermillion
Set on a course headed for the horizon
right underneath where a blue moon was rising

Humpbacks breached left and Fin whales breached right
Gray whales were darker, Belugas were white
Orcas went down as the Blue Whales arose
I sat on the bow and they rubbed on my toes

They left us ashore on a still-rising island
I jumped off the arc and the lead whale was smiling
Knee deep in surf, I admired the place
Mango trees, bumble bees, lots of great space

and so on and so on and so on it goes
the story of children with whale petting toes
who ended the old ways of sonar and whaling
ended forever when kids just went sailing!
