Carpe Drill’em

by Steven Kent

“Oil and Gas Lobbyists Are Using Ukraine to Push for a Drilling Free-for-all in The United States”
The Guardian

It matters not how much we kill
Or if we cause a major spill;
The time is right—drill, baby, drill!
The moment’s here for seizing.

Prepare to take a victory lap
Since Putin chose to pull this crap;
Our governments will crush that sap
And leave his people freezing.

Let’s make the most of what we found.
Quick, move those giant rigs around!
Great opportunities abound,
But sanctions might start easing.

We must act now; we cannot wait.
Tomorrow will be much too late—
By then the crisis could abate,
And that would not be pleasing.
