Poet Max Wheat’s new poem…”Barack Obama: Offshore Oil Drilling President”

Barack Obama: Offshore Oil Drilling President

“Let me be clear: I continue to believe that domestic oil production
is an important part of our overall strategy for energy security.”

-Barrack Obama, President of the United States
April 30, 2010

Youth, hundreds of thousands, probably more than in any election,
campaign for the man who arouses their trust, their hopes.

“… kick in the face,” grimaces
Florida International University student,
14 months an Obama campaigner

Half the east coast,
167 million square miles:
northern Delaware
to central coast of Florida–
obsession of oil industry,
the Outer Continental Shelf–
the rising sun silhouetting drilling platforms

Gulf of Mexico
off Florida’s West Coast:
3.5 billion barrels of oil,
17 trillion cubic feet of gas,
richest single tract in Obama plan–
the setting sun silhouetting drilling platforms


Tracts in the Chukchi Sea, Beaufort Sea
130 million square miles in Arctic Ocean–
the all day sun silhouetting drilling platforms

Oil wells drilled into reservoirs
pumping out eons-trapped hydrocarbons,
petroleum for more and more and more cars, trucks, motorcycles
racing the California Freeway
speeding the Long Island Expressway
accelerating the Capital Beltway–

Morning-evening commute back-ups,
gasoline idling engines taking vehicles no where


Maxwell Corydon Wheat, Jr
First Poet Laureate
Nassau County, New York
