Posts Tagged ‘Fracking’

There’s a moose loose in Holyrood hoose,
because the foodbank hud nae cheese!
And the delays in universal credit 
had brought it tae its knees.
“I’m a gallus wee moose,
and a don’t mean to gloat.
but at least I’m no a ferry company,
Without a blinkin’ boat!”

Mibbee it’s a Waspi moose,
with a sting within his tail.
Terrorised and traumatised
by another government fail.
“I scurried up from Blackpool,
to share ma tail of woe,
about how that fracking fiasco
is no’ the way to go.”
Austerity is over, so they say at least,
but the foodbanks still got nae cheese
and the moose that’s loose in Holyrood hoose
is still on his blinkin’ knees!!

On The Brink

Just came across this poem I wrote last year as the event’s at Barton Moss fracking camp took on a sinister twist…

It’s not the “hippies” that you should fear.
The protesters don’t warrant your sneers.
If you stopped to look, then you’d see.
They’re genuine people just like you and me.

Fracking is a disaster, it’s not a sane choice.
These people are only trying to share their voice.
Aware of the dangers and the lies that we’ve been told.
They can’t stand back and watch as our land is being sold.

Nurses and teachers are among those who stand in the cold.
Being badly beaten, but it’s not that you’d be told.
Thing’s have gotten crazy, and the bully boy’s must go.
Have you noticed how many could be described as being “slow”?

I know it’s not PC to say it, it’s cos we’re on the brink.
On a time when we accept our coppers aren’t paid to think.
With the crown above our heads, herd mentality it kicks in.
Following orders, no compassion left within.

In a hypnotised state they don’t question why they’re there.
And even if they did, would they stop to care?
Remembering we’re human, even when confined by rules.
Stop following orders, given to you by fools.

Individual responsibility for the crimes must be addressed.
And those who gave the orders, are in need of serious redress.
Pay attention everybody, do what you can do.
Take action now, or next time it could be you!

There’s an old insidious energy, infecting all the World.

Touching every sphere with webs and serpent swirls.

Under the name religion we’ve seen so many brutal things,

Boys and girls mutilated before they can even sing.

Wars and bloody battles, child brides, who’ll never heal.

Goddess worshiping whores, who “do it for a meal”.

Bumbling fools and corporate clowns

Turning our world upside down

Creating havoc and running amok

Never stopping to take stock.

Hands up their arses,

Like puppets on a string

Will we really let them destroy everything?

With tears in my eyes and pain in my heart

I wonder how we’ll get a fresh start

Our rights are being stripped away,

By these fumbling fools every single day.

I can’t believe what’s in front of my eyes.

The signs were there, I scream between sighs.

Fracking, GMO, Water Fluoridation,

Nonsensical policies and complete domination.

It’s not too late, we can still turn it round.

With hearts open wide and feet on the ground.

Lift the apathy blanket, uncover what was hid.

The people have the power, we really always did.

Aww..bonnie Scotland, I love you so much.

Yet they sell you off with shouts of “How much?”

Beautiful mountains, volcanoes and shores

Mythical lands and tales from folklore

Forgotten the stories of slaughter and death.

Forgotten what led us into this mess.

Under attack by needles for years.

Many early deaths and shedding of tears.

What causes our people to feel so much pain?

Is it repeating the cycles again and again?

The latest threat is one I hope soon dies.

With toxins galore falling from the skies.

With the water and soil under threat too.

Causing me to ask, what the fuck can we do?

If the needle of chemicals hits a new vein,

Thing’s are guaranteed, to be never the same.

Already depleted this nation’s health,

Hasn’t anyone told you, that is our wealth!

Fracking he tells us, will save us all.

As his whipped “nimby’s” join the call.

We’ll give you money if you sell us your soul.

We’ll let you live, if you do what your told!

Never mind the questions already raised.

We’ll just ignore them, don’t be phased.

The cancers, toxic rivers and the cows without tails.

The silenced with money and activists in jail.

Queenie’s sold us out for Uranium profits

While the political class, are filling their pockets.

We can still change it, if we all got on side.

This danger is real, there’s nowhere to hide.

We can stop it now before it gets out of hand

If we work together to save this land.

We are the many, they the few.

And unless I’m confused,

they’re supposed to serve you.

Let them hear your answer is clear.

We won’t do this to the land we hold dear.

Sign the petition, add your sweet voice.

Let them see they don’t have a choice.

No Fracking forever, there’s no case for it.

Anyone who says different is just talking shit.

Banned world-wide but it’s okay for us?

That’s just fracking ridiculous!!
