Life for oil

 

David B. McCoy

Oil runs thick
with spent human blood.

Blood-barges transport
crude to U.S. refineries.

Refineries thin the oil like
coumadin thins thick blood.

Blood-oil flows from refinery
to pump to our vehicles.

Vehicles guzzle the oil -- the blood --
and spews spent souls from hot exhaust pipes.
