Long live the Delaware River

February 23, 2012

There once was a lady named Collier
whose plans have become follier and follier.
She’s squandered the last four years
dancing with drillers and frackers,
on the assumption that we were all
just a bunch of slackers.
But those tales of “untold riches”
couldn’t buy everyone’s loyalties.
That explains the long faces of all those
who are still waiting for royalties.
And whoever cooked up that legend
of 100 years more of natural gas,
Is trying to tell you, dear reader,
that you are a horse’s _ _ _!
(You fill in the blank spaces -
I can’t, for this limerick was not intended
to cause any red faces.)
