The Fieldstone Review

Picket-Line Poem 1

I.

The Honourable Society of
No More Dirty Energy
blogged yesterday
that all plans for dirty-dollar
power plants should be scrapped.
The world simply cannot afford
not to donate today. Click Here.

By making a much-needed donation
today you will join GreenHearts
in our work to train kamikaze starlings
and learn our own dead weight.
We engineer protection for the planet
and find the solutions we need to our
choose-your-currency-and-amount issues.

How can we put a price tag
on unchecked growth in truth demand
or on the unprecedented influx
of donations into our
much-needed, independent voice?

Our sustainable future accepts
all major credit cards.

II.

The Right Honourable Minister of
Anthropogenic Factors and Increased CO2
announced yesterday
that this government is every bit
as serious about the stewardship
of our environment
as it is about fuel-efficient SUVs.

We engineer economies, he said, to maximize
both capability and comfort, including:
emissions targets for select industries
and allowing less-polluting companies
to sell so-called carbon credits
to those that can reach 500
highway miles on a single compromise.
How can we put a price tag
on unchecked growth in energy demand
or on the unprecedented influx
of foreign-investment revenue
into our best of intentions?

Our sustainable future accepts
all major credit cards.
