      I'm following the Seize BP movement which begins today and continues formally for the next week with demonstrations planned in at least 50 cities. I've also added my outrage by publishing a not so pretty poem.

      down in the parish

      (should have passed the lethe
      i saw an impossible blue rose
      a red brick cottage
      and a beautiful river 
      they said it was
      the best place for fishing)

      just a matter of time 
      before my eye levees broke
      carrying my heart 
      down to Delacroix 
      a gulf between the living 
      and dead 
      stilted homes 
      built on silted islands 
      washed away
      bait and outfitters gone 
      fishing for babies now 

      fuck those corporate 
      seneschals of greed 
      kyoto accord busters 
      hope they perish
      covered in black gold 
      mired in muck 
      in all that texas tea 

      (no phone no tv no radio 
      we scramble onto 
      a dilapidated rope bridge
      look down and feel cold water 
      rising above our knees 
      now up to our necks
      3 of us can't save 5 little ones
      do we choose)

      repose en paix 
      mes cousins acadiens bébé

      This poem was inspired by several dreams involving water symbology and predated the devastation of Katrina. It seemed appropriate now to dust it off and blow it into the wind.

      > It is my sincere hope the top hat semi seal works but Bp will attempt to maintain control as long as they can make money from the well. They really do not care if it leaks as long as they get the lions share of the oil. They will lie about flow rates and environmental damage just as they have already done.
