Poem of The Week


This is a shale future we are facing.
As the money talks down the fears
We all know the truth and it better not end in tears

The birds will no longer be heard as the sound of the lorries will reign
And the silence we once observed will be replaced by a bellowing pain

We must not accept the bribery and the offer of reward
For this will drift across the sea, where they will count their richly hoard

The message is simple to all who care; don’t mistake gas for hot air
For together we know we can save the day, as we all unite and say

“Frack off once and for all”
“Frack off and go away”.
