Just eat it

When with the bayou they're messing
BP says, "Oh what a blessing,
The mix will be fine
Add vinegar from wine
To make a fine salad dressing!"

Author's note: In the end; BP will pay close to nothing, and the rest of us will be stuck with 
the cost of the environmental damage.  To the anti-government regulation libertarians: this 
lack of reason in law enables rich and powerful companies to get away with theft beyond 
imagination.  Death to the Tea Party!

    It's outrageous the way both BP and the government have handled this. Weeks now, and the oil still leaks. What can be done, Duke? Have you heard about the technology Kevin Costner helped develop to separate the oil and water? Wonderful idea, but how can we hope to clean up the mess when the contamination continues. This subject has been causing so many people a great deal of grief. The environment and livelihoods are at stake. Sorry for rambling. Great poem. Love, Carolyn
