Dear BP

I wonder if you care...
About those people in the States...
Who won't have the luxury...
Of watching a yacht race.

Your boss we are told...
Needed to chill...
Off the English coast...
While people in Louisiana...
Continue to be toast.

We have been asked time and again...
To be patient as you try...
To fix a mess that has caused...
Thousands of people to ask why.

How could an oil company...
With that sunflower of yellow and green so bright...
Want to have its big shot...
See his yacht in plain sight?

We could get mad...
We could get even...
But who can we blame...
When there are those many people...
Whose lives will never be the same?

But wait, there's more...
I'm sure to know...
To this tragedy...
Because we still haven't figured out...
The damage to the sea.

And so we thank you...
For your...
Commitment to us all...
Perhaps the oil will stop flowing...
Sometime before the fall.

After all, I'm sure you know...
It's only Tony Hayward...
Whose legacy will be...
That oil going wayward.
