the marcellus play

October 28, 2010

this is:
oil vs solar
marketing vs truth
walmart vs main street
insanity vs sanity
landmen vs farmland
lawyers vs community
lobbyists vs democracy
secrecy vs transparency
power vs progress
the state vs you

back to the back of the bus

January 20, 2009

Here we are again
honoring  leaders
as if kings and queens.

All hail _______!
( Ambassador, Senator, President, Judge, Bishop, Governor…)

they require
more deference than you.

Their interests
more important
than yours.

It is a paradigm
the founders
could not transcend –

monarchy and privilege,

justified as
the way things are

as the sign reads:

Those of you without a gown –
move to the back of the bus.

Dear Bishop
