There's those that complain then those that try to make teh best of it like my garbage company, they always leave small jokes and poems to try and put humor into our economy. I got this one today with them saying there going to raise fees by $2.00:
"Blah! Blah! Blah" We bow our heads to Exxon Mobil There profits are high, but their "cause" is noble The money is needed for research and exploration To satisfy the needs of an oil hungry nation!
And we're so glad the pipelines that threatened BP Were not rusty as they thought them to be "THANK GOODNESS" no hurricanes have hit the gulf coast The platforms are standing, the oil giants boast!
We are so grateful that someone woke up some day And decided three bucks a gallon was too much to pay Did they finally realize the havoc they wreaked? Or did their interest in profits finally peak?
So gas prices are down — at least for a while And maybe you would think that we could force a smile But the damage is done, we've no money to spend If we don't raise our rates, it could be the end!
Our wallets are now empty, just like our tanks And of course we have payments to make to the banks Now if that's not enough to cause us some pain The landfill decided to increase their "capital gain"!
They want surcharges for gas and environmental fees Plus a 13 percent raise to make them pleased! And we held of our increase longer than we should Thinking the crisis was temporary and all would be good
So until were powered by electricity or corm The weight of these increases must be borne And when that day comes won't it be great We'll just worry about drought or the utility rate!
