A whimsical submission to ECAN
One of our more thoughtful supporters . . .
My submission to Ecan is simple, not grand
The democracy lacking? we don't understand
We rally, we write, we pray every day
On top of all that we're expected to pay
Nine hundred dollars per Commissioner per day
(If they're Government how come our taxes don't pay?)
The rates, sure, are levied so where is our say?
Is it just in this draft plan we might see the way
To stop the greedy nonsense
Which will rest upon your conscience
Please hear our indignation
At this massive irrigation
Short-term gain for the big companies?
Sure! - but we will foot the bill
If the tourists can't drink the water
(Gallons of it over the hills!)
The companies in Harrisburg
Plus other parts of USA
Making money out of power
And milk additions, eh!
Have taken Aotearoa
As the fools that we may be
If the say for our environment
Is left to Mr Key.
