Living Close To A Nuclear Plant

Living Close To a Nuclear Plant

By Elton Camp

The location of the nuclear plant I despise
For it’s not very far away as the crow flies

When built, the largest in the world we got
It was capable of producing one gigawatt

But frequent trouble the facility did give
In an area where a great many folks live

A fire damaged nuclear unit one 
Later, all three units were undone

Operation and management not good enough
After restart, a leak spilled some scary stuff

Unit Two was later shut down for a day
River water was too hot to cool they say

And based on what’s happened before
An earthquake could damage the core

It’s safe the federal government does assure
I hope that, for radiation, they have a cure

With this bad record, the place isn’t fine
I wish it was in your backyard, not mine
