Australian poet, Formal poetry, poem, poetry, sonnet, Spenserian sonnet, Trump cuts red and green tape, U.S. oil production, U.S. to become net exporter of oil
Fairies at the Bottom of the World
The yanks will soon be exporting their oil,
For they’ve a leader, and his name is Trump.
He brings each Democrat’s blood to the boil,
By putting Yankee oil in every sump.
The media, on his head take a dump,
For cutting all the tape that’s red and green.
But night and day the wells are drilled, and pump
Black gold — more than the country’s ever seen.
But in Australia we think that it’s mean
To extract gas and oil; we leave it there,
And worship energy that’s bright and clean.
We’re virtuous, and for the Earth we care —
“No oil or gas or coal!” we loudly sing,
“It’s wind and sunshine we’ll be exporting!”
— D.N. O’Brien
