KeystoneXL Is The Key
After six years with no definite end in sight
It is time for Big Blue to bite the bullet and do what is right
It is time to hear the construction sound finally like TAPS
The independence of the oil sands in a ribbon to unwrap
Sadly, we have no boycott as we did the TAPS logjam to break
When will the Canadians leave in disgust and let China the oil take?
KeystoneXL has been held hostage by Big Blue in his climate campaign
Such hypocrisy to speak of energy when this chance may go down the drain.
Energy always involves taking of risks to find and extractWhether close to the surface, under the oceans or in rocks to frack
Energy to be transported some risks are always involved
Ones that the pipeline owners really try to solve
TAPS was years of litigation paper with the slaughter of trees
Bogus issues of whether the caribous could move free
Imagine the pit of lack of energy domestic that today would exist
If the environmentalists would have won in their battle to TAPS resist.
Time for us to act and, like TAPS finally, KeystoneXL to quickly now construct
Time to end the War on Fossil and pipeline building it obstructs
With the jobs created by exploiting and litigation against this energy source
Obama could still keep some of his crony green spending in force
It is all well and good that McCarthy is but a bike ride from her kids away,
The rest of us may need cars, buses, trains, and planes to come into play.
If she could take a break from the War on Coal and the EPA’s regulatory energy curbing advance
Intern at a private for profit company for just a week, it might shake her out of her regulatory trance
Kerry, this may be difficult, but as Secretary of State you are supposed to put your green friends’ needs and wants aside
Approve without delay KeystoneXL as only the ideologues believe not stopping it would somehow raise our tides.
If you have the President’s ear, this advice to get our energy independence back
Also leash McCarthy’s steps to drive a nail into the heart of expanding efforts to frack
