Opinion: A haiku for the Public Service Board

PSB Poem
Governors come and onto “DC” they may go
Influenced by money from those who help them “grow.”
But like invasive species, the seeds they can sow —
May alter landscapes in ways we don’t want to know!
Contamination of water, land, communities,
are often part and parcel when power is seized.
When corporate money reigns over the powers that be,
Governors can forget their wise constituency!
This Canadian pipeline will do us no good
And would set us back greatly from where we once stood
A progressive state, “the little engine that could”
We want to save our land from the corporate hood!
So Public Service Board, please listen to us now —
We’re offering our wisdom, comment and know how!
Climate change is real, we must deal with it right now
Don’t disregard us by giving Shumlin a bow!
A Haiku for you, PSB
Public Service Board
Please save our Land and The Lake
You Decide our Fate!
Elizabeth Frank
