N.I.M.B.Y. Next It Might Be You!!!!

We wonder what we have done to be the unlucky ones,
Being forced to live by an Industrial Wind Farm with officials claiming they do no harm.

We need Industrial Wind they said with a grin,
to save our planet for our future  children.

Parts are built and shipped from over seas,
all in the name of going green,

Our Governor has stated,
Birds bats and bears are expendable.
If turbines were sited by his home and loved ones would he say that still?

When talk of all this started we did not put up a fight,
little did we know they would bother us day and night.

Round and round the blades are turning,
up and down my stomach is churning.

Ears are ringing day and night, sleep disrupted by fright or flight.

Sleep deprivation is no way to live, at a reduced price our home we will have to give.

Our home and memories we will have to leave behind,
but it is that or lose our minds.

Where will we go?  We do not know,
to a place where wind turbines will never be built in a row.

Have been waiting for P.E.T.A. to show up any day,
claiming living near wind turbines is cruelty to animals and take our pets away.

We have been told sacrifices must be made,
while already rich people are being paid.

People that profit will never live near a turbine,
Expect us to suck it up, tow the line.

I ask you to look into my children’s eyes,
and continue to repeat your lies.
