Check out this brilliant rendition of “Green Eggs and Ham” written by Maryland MoveOn leader Mike Hersh, who helped deliver the 650,000 comments to the Bureau of Land Management on August 22, 2013:

Dr Seuss Style denunciation of fracking
By Mike Hersh

I do not like fracking on our land
I do not like it greedy oil man

I would not like it near my home
I don’t want cancer in my bones

I would not like it near my school
Sir do you take me for a fool?

I would not like the benzine spills
I truly fear how radioactivity kills

I do not like fracking on our land
I do not like it greedy oil man

I would not like it in national parks
I do oppose it by light or by dark

Please don’t dare say that it’s OK
It leaks at night and spills by day

I do not like fracking on our land
I do not like it greedy oil man

I don’t trust frack fluid in a bucket
I’ve seen it spilling as they truck it

We know all fracking is unsafe
changing climate would erase
The largest part of the human race
As the few survivors flee to space

I do not like fracking on our land
I do not like it greedy oil man

We only have one living planet
weather gets wilder we understand it

Water is subject to shortage controls
fracking blasts water deep in holes

Frackers mix water with poison benzine
Then it’s far too toxic for cleansing

Faucet water catches fires and drips
Kids get leukemia from chemical slips

I do not like fracking on our land
I do not like it greedy oil man

I would not like it national parks
I do oppose it by light or by dark

I don’t care about the cash you’d make
I Don’t want to die in new earth quakes

Don’t frack me bro
don’t frack my land
Not high or low
Not by the sand

I do not like fracking on our land
I do not like it greedy oil man

Not in the dark not in a park
Not by the light it’s just not right
Not here nor there nor anywhere

We do not like your fracking plan
We’ll stop you with a fracking ban
