Ducks In Oil

Ducks in Oil,And not a painting. The sad expressions on their faces. I never knew a duck
could cry.!Ducks in oil looking like bad clay molds,I know if they could they would ban
B.P. to Hell. All they can do is wait to die..... and slowly waddle against the
wall,condemned  to death from an oil spill. Refusing their last meal. One looked at me and
said with his eyes ; I don't have a soul.but I had my life. And this big corporation of
murth, has failed to see my worth...The  look he gave me said it all. If He could ,he
would, ....ban B.P from the planet earth.! That's when I saw a duck cry.

    BP did a lot more to fix the problem than an American oil company would have done. Check out the Gulf Coast now. An American oil company would have had the government do it and charge the taxpayer.We need clean energy.
