all right

Occasionally adding corroborative details to add verisimilitude to otherwise bald and unconvincing,
but veridicous accounts
with careful attention, indefatigable assiduity, and nice discrimination.

The Dangers of Fracking

Wicked Frackers Use Dangerous Materials

I have it on the
best authority* that they
also use fine gold

for their fracking, and
myrrh and costly frankincense
ere it gets too old.

Indeed, no evil
is too much for those frackers;
they grow overbold

since they do their work
for profit—yes, for money!
or so I’ve been told.

*  well, I assert it:
science is now based on what
we wish to uphold.

A slightly different, earlier version was written as a comment on Bishop Hill’s “More tactical lying”.  The satanic process of hydraulic fracturing (fracking), according to allegations of its opponents, involves the use of lead, uranium, mercury, ethylene glycol, radium, methanol, hydrochloric acid, formaldehyde, blood of newborn babies, bats’ wings, monosodium glutamate, the crushed dreams of pious environmentalists, dried toads’ livers, a dash of cayenne, soap, blue kryptonite, worn tyres and old velvet jackets.
