the BP thingy

OK, so here are the lyrics:

Look at me now, I am BP
I will promise you plenty of energy
the world shall burn - all it's fuels
sail away with me on this ship of fools.


Look at me now, I am BP
and I have a brilliant strategy
suck out all the oil from below the sea
yeah, I'll give you plenty of energy


All is well when you gaze out to the sea
all looks swell from your condo's balkony


Seagulls are covered in black molasses
the oil spill grows bigger while we drag our asses
fisherman miss out on their daily catch,
help me Sir, do you have a latch?
I wanna stop this spill, and go for the kill
though to succeed to stop this mess - I guess I never will!
The ocean is polluted and a general saluted
while I give you this - and here is the key
I deliver you plentiful of energy
and don't forget my name, it's simply: BP!


Politicians scratch their heads
repeat what all ghost-writer said
and without even blinking
they speak loud what they are thinking,
I am BP and I give you energy


All is well when you gaze out to the sea
all looks swell from your condo's balkony


So the Gulf is infected and the shores not protected
put more platforms up, fill the missing gap
'cause I am BP - and I'll give you energy


I am here to stay, take your liberties away
forget them now - I have no more to say.

Beware, above text is a draft. The copper relief of the image is over 20 years old, hanging on the entrance wall of a restaurant - it's called "Nordic Light". I get free meals there whenever I appear. Kind of cool.

Oh, the Inn is called "Apfelbaum" (Apple tree) - the relief "Nordic Light".
As for free meals Anna-Lys, I may always invite you in case they are stingy.

Gary-
the oil thing really bothers me. It's a bit like Chernobyl in slow motion. Maybe that's too crass of an image, nevertheless - it is unforgivable.

Damn, I am not good to read these messages. Only thing I know - they are written in Korean script.
Well, thanks anyway!
