Editor's Note: John Tuach, a geologist, is well-known to the mining and mineral exploration industry. It seems, in addition to a keen skill for staking promising mineral claims, he has a talent for poetry - of which I was unaware. Known to most only by his surname, Tuach, the 'bard of Pynn's Brook', has written several of what he calls "Muskrat rants". They can be found at www.jinglejohn.com .The Uncle Gnarley Blog has never considered the appointment of a Poet Laureate - always thinking playwright, never settling on whether comedy or tragedy. But Tuach - in verse - sets one to thinking!
THE ITALIAN CONNECTION?
The Muskrat Falls fiasco, a future in the clouds,
Was planned and manned by companies
Run by doubtful crowds:
The one in court for their support
To dictator, now in shroud,
The other that took down the dome
That once they proudly crowed.
The Muskrat Falls fiasco, its future in a cloud,
The execution long been cooked,
And project well endowed.
Will there be a reckoning?
Will those involved be bowed?
Is their escape allowed?
The Muskrat Falls fiasco, future now in doubt,
Deception since inception,
And silence from those cowed.
Our leaders past and at the prow
Have failed - the future's in escrow.
The truth to why, and where and how -
But justice for the Common Joe.
