It’s Sunday and today’s poem from The Bard of Murdock exposes the waste from Obama’s green energy policies. The poem was originally published on Saturday, October 20, 2012. Please be sure to read the article linked by the Bard before reading the poem.
Spoils of Green
In Evergreen Solar
I asked the controller
To vest of the taxpayers’ dime.
The market then sputtered,
And quickly they shuttered:
We just couldn’t get there in time.
Solyndra was waiting,
And dangled a rating
Well worthy of rolling the dice.
Alas, they deflated
And crashed unabated,
With taxpayers paying the price.
Investments take mettle,
And often unsettle
The folks who like government lean.
But victors get spoils,
And nothing quite oils
The system like funding for Green.
