BP’s oil destroyed the Mississippi Sound,
The birds have died as well as fish below (a death so slow),
God help you please, Mississippi Sound,
The dolphins need a place where they can play,
Will BP pay?

YouTube puts up news coverage but you remove these video files,
The ocean’s a living hell along with the continental shelf.
The Gulf was once a place wildlife called home.

And look at all the destruction and its only just begun,
Have you not heard of quid pro quo? (Resentment grows).
At least no fear of whaling guns, as there are none.
No pelicans no birds of prey,
(An abandoned Bay).

Capping it is iffy may cause another spill to flow,
Most of us would be imprisoned for this mistake.
Meanwhile Deep Horizon emits a hellish flare.
The economy has hit the skids.

I remember tourists coming here to have fun,
We now know about your balloon and pony show.
I miss my Mississippi Sound,
Heaven knows its where I grew up and played.
Another day, its gone away.

Now its just a place where BP oil was strewn,
BP has sealed the wildlife’s fate.
Have you done this all along would you admit?
Or just too much to lose?
And a tv campaign designed to confuse.

Where’s our way of life we had a long time ago?
Its gone BP because of you (Everyone will lose)
Why did you destroy the Mississippi Sound,
(Why do you stay? Please leave we can only pray).

Dedicated To My Wife Lee Hiller-London

Panama City Beach was like snow,
Now thousands tarballs in a line,
Love Bellingrath Gardens in Mobile,
You covered Mobile Bay with slime.

The oil zapped the fish & the birds,
Dispersements on the ocean’s ground,
BP’s spokesman said it was about done,
But the destruction had just begun.

Oil on the water,
Rig’s fire lights the sky
Oil on the water.

Eleven men down.

Now we know Hayward is a louse,
After that Tony yachted around,
Once home tomullet  snapper & sea trout,
Now nowhere to be found.

Pelicans and other birds,
Had to find another place,
But for many time was running out,
Drenched in oil from wings to face.

Oil on the water,
Rigs fire lights the sky, Is BP learning?
Oil on the water,

No wildlife around,
No dolphins play.

Within a few days the Gulf was a living hell,
More than any living thing could bare,
I watched the news with my bride and cried,
What once was is no longer there.

Much of the wildlife found is now dead,
A few lucky ones found their way to a vet,
And BP wonders why we’er pi$$ed,
Not to worry BP we’ll never forget, how you spilled….

Oil on the water,
And told us all those lies,
Oil on the water.

Oil everywhere, everywhere

Your rig burns, still now,
And you don’t like media around,
Gulf small business better be your concern, yeah
BP When will you ever learn. Just debris.
Eleven drowned.

Grand Isle water’s totally brown.
