bulldozed mountaintops, filthy water, poisoned water, carcinogenic water, destroyed animal habitat

West Virginia Moonscape

Republican ad coal money comes
from those who mountains scrape
who turn West Virginia into
a dead moonscape
who cause black water
to pour from fountains
who destroy animal habitat
in once jadecarpeted mountains
whose explosives blow birds and bears apart
(with their oil money they buy costly art)
who pour poisons into the water
to give cancer to sons and daughters
