She is shaking

She is Shaking

She is shaking

That’s all we know.

We can say this or that,

And dispute the facts.

 

But this much is clear.

She is shaking.

In Lancashire,

where they frack.

 

Draw your own conclusions

From that.

 

Bearing in mind

That it’s happened before.

 

That they know it’s possible,

that fracking causes quaking,

this shudder and shaking

Deep in the body

Of the Earth we hold dear.

 

I’ve heard the arguments,

I’ve heard there’s ‘no proof’,

Heard scientists describe

This absence as truth.

 

What does your gut tell you?

Your womb, your heart?

When you lay on the Earth,

What does she impart

 

About the cause of her malady,

About what’s going on?

Trust what she tells you,

You won’t get it wrong.
