Cheryl J. Fish: Yours and Mine

=================================== Fall '11 TOC

Preliminary drilling and mining
commences near Mount St. Helens volcano: “exercising private
mineral rights.”  Are some rights wrong?

Rubble cleared and removed at Ground Zero: remains
of buildings and bodies.
Pile driver for foundations into landfill
Where a river’s ocean once rocked the shore
Which planners dream of evening the score?

They may dig or drill open pits or underground mines
(What is yours and what is mine?)
Federal approval? Public outcry?
No permission needed: kill, fill, drill, spill.
