down below the ocean floor lies a hole spewing oil
at a depth no man has ever tried before nor can control
oil gushing deep within the water that kills and destroys
a hole within the ocean floor that never should have been

marine life dies wetlands shrivel away dreams that disappear
peoples lives alter as lifestyles come to an end hopes die
ones they trusted allowed greed to take control judgements to fade
a hole within the ocean floor that never should have been

lies told to mask mistakes actions taken to hide guilts responsibilties
where is the valor the trust of the world now the carelessness survives
lack of regard for the safety of this world the trust of all now ignored
a hole within the ocean floor that never should have been

where does it end where does it begin are there any answers at all
can the damage be redeemed can the destruction be healed
is the trust now lost forever as desperation to repair bears out
a hole within the ocean floor that never should have been

A most apt and timely subject, Mary. This was (is) a tragedy of incredible magnitude and we have no idea what will come of it. Coincidentally, I posted a poem here at AD entitled, "Death In The Gulf" expressing my thoughts on this. Thank you. Love and best wishes,
