I’m Still Out Here On The Road Less Traveled,
Trying To Enjoy What’s Left of Nature’s Bliss;
But I Should Never Have Turned On the Radio,
Very Sadly, No One Seems To Care About This.
But I Could Care Less About Her Teen-Age Daughter’s Status,
Or About Her Very Nasty Grudge Against Her Ex Brother-in-Law;
What I Find Truly Atrocious Is Her Stance On Environmental Issues,
A Position That Truly Fills Me With Disgust, And No Admiration At All.
What a sad disaster, this political team is
Mr. McCain advocates ‘more of the same’
And now, his Vice Presidential candidate
Is the champion of the ‘Kill The Wolf’ game
Governor Sarah Palin is extremely Anti-Wildlife
She promotes slaughter of wolves, from Alaska’s sky
Her plans for drilling and mining and wildlife massacre
Should make every nature loving American, want to cry
Governor Palin has delighted in posting a bounty, on wolves shot
She believes Polar Bears don’t merit being an Endangered Species
She refuses to protect endangered Beluga Whales and Grizzly Bears
Her stance on wildlife and our environment, is extremely plain to see
She's also an ardent advocate for the world’s largest open pit mine
Which could eventually kill all the salmon, in Alaska’s Bristol Bay
Yet one more anti-environmental politician, seeking national office
Truly something that our imperiled natural world doesn’t need today
And although once a conservationist, McCain no longer cares
Now Alaska, the last refuge of wildlife, may soon be decimated
If these two – John McCain and The Animal Slayer - get elected
Any nature lovers still remaining in America, should not be elated
Alaska, led by Sarah Palin, is the only state in our nation where trophy hunters can savagely gun down wolves from airplanes and helicopters, or chase wolves to exhaustion from the sky, and then shoot them down from the ground. And her plans are already underway to do the very same thing, to Alaska’s bears.
As recently as July, under Governor Palin’s direction, Alaskan wildlife agency personnel staked out a known wolf denning site - and, using helicopters - gunned down 14 adult wolves from the air. When they landed, they then found 14 helpless wolf pups in the nearby dens - just weeks old - and they very methodically shot every one of them in the head.
Governor Palin will continue to promote brutal and illegal aerial hunting policies and barbaric wildlife extermination practices in Alaska, and throughout these United States; and now, several other states already eagerly want to follow her hideous example.
Our current President,
Has already been labeled
‘The worst environmental leader,
This nation has ever had,’
By numerous conservation groups.
And if elected, this horrific new team,
Could even beat his truly abysmal record.
