The Tanker by Garry Firth

Filed under: Firth,Issue: 2001,Poetry — usbengoshi @ 6:28 pm

not so long long ago
a ship went where it shouldn’t go
it entered a beautiful wilderness called puget sound
and the behemoth tanker for some reason ran aground
this was one of the largest ever spills
and left the company with a massive bill
this is the story of exxon valdez
which almost brought a large company to its knees
the captain of the ship was subsequently dismissed
partly because of incompetence, but mainly because he was pissed
