Canadian heavy crude -

fatigue grown cracks coalesce to blow

eight-hundred thousand gallons

into creek and river - fills

thirty-eight miles of the Kalamazoo.

Seventeen hours to shut it down.

Five years - hundreds of millions

to clean-up and comp. It's

good enough now for business to fish.

Company's pleased - with

thirty-eight miles of the Kalamazoo.

Greed can't see obscenity,

feel pain for land and living things.

It says - loosen controls

knowing oil's still there

and will never be gone - from

thirty-eight miles of the Kalamazoo.
