Oil Spill in The Gulf of Mexico

This poem reflects my environmental concerns. I love the earth. The oil spill in The Gulf of Mexico has an impact on all of us and I am very sad about this event.

Dead Zones

© Laverne Little
Here we go again with another severed vein
You keep cutting them again and again
Where in the world does this cut lead
Like any fluid that pours - it lets the earth bleed
Call the experts in and try to stop the flow
Just how to stop it, you don't know
This is what comes from your greed
Generations to suffer - yes indeed
Contamination - minus oxygenation
Equal dead zones with no explanation
To future generations -
Need to let the earth's veins alone today
Your greed isn't worth the price we all pay
