A Dam Job by leighmf, on containment of the Colorado River

When times grew tough
we fried our Spam.
Government ordered up a Dam.
Aetna vowed, "We'll post the Bond-
though you'll need Big Bucks to respond."
And on all the Earth, Middle Earth, and Hell,
no one did- except Bechtel.

For those who still may not be certain,
Bechtel's the same as Halliburton.
If you look behind the curtain,
Halli Burton, rich Count de Bary,
dear Lincoln-Berry, I'm your "Carrie."
(Sissy Space-K , Kryder very
relative to Sister Katherine- nary).

I need a Dam Job, Flim and Flam,
Guy Owin' interested I am.
How long can Bad Bucks hold the River
Trustees of the Indian Giver?
Carver of the canyon's glory,
mightier than Spelling, Tory-
Who guaranteed the water flows?
Who Certain-teed your garden hose?
Slave drivers in the vein and nose,
associates of Pepsico's.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
