A Natural Gas Christmas Carol, Starring Gov. Andy

An early Christmas present for New York landowners and those with an interest in drilling in New York State, provided by our friends at the Joint Landowners Coalition: a “Natural Gas Christmas Carol”. It is funny, and sad–all at the same time. Give it a read! (Hey, it’s better than a lump of coal.)

Here’s the letter and a link to the PDF from the JLCNY…

    It was the night before
    Christmas

    and Vic was home all alone.

    Not too be discouraged

    he decided to polish his throne.

    As he polished and shined

    and sipped polish wine

    he was proud where he sat

    would soon have a shine.

    But alas came some chatter

    that thought everyone mattered.

    When Cuomo was finally to say

    Drilling in New York is on the
    way.

    There should have been laughter

    There should have been Cheer

    But old man Vic is a skeptic this
    year.

    I have heard from Cuomo all of the talk

    It’s a matter of record, it’s just empty
    squawk

    So forgive me if I don’t believe on Christmas
    Eve

    A Governor who no one he’s
    deceived

    So as he polished and shined

    and sipped polish wine

    he was proud where he sat

    would soon have a shine.

    Vic looked back over the last 5
    years

    It was hard for him to hold back the
    tears

    Friends and family who lost so
    much

    The delays just mean NY is out to
    lunch

    Jobs once so close prosper and
    wealth

    not just for landowners but for all that
    apply

    Another Christmas come 5th year in a
    row

    The inaction of a governor seems all to
    slow.

    My Friends Jim and Ray,not here Christmas
    Day

    There wives left alone, waiting for prosperity and
    good will

    But it was NYRAD & VeRSE, Ruffalo and
    Ono

    They kept these landowners from paying the
    bills.

    Friends That I love as friends should
    be

    left with no place to put a Christmas
    Tree

    Jobs lost by the thousands here in
    NY

    Natural Gas opportunity was their great
    hope.

    Lies about air, babies, and the
    water

    Lies lies lies in all the
    chatter

    Why does Cuomo not follow the
    Country

    Every shale state getting gas
    bounty

    As he polished and shined

    and sipped polish wine

    he was proud where he sat

    would soon have a shine

    And when he’s finished Old Vic will flush
    twice

    not to be naughty,,, not to be
    nice…

    But as a salute to a State that does needlessly
    wait

    We can only hope Cuomo wakes before it’s too
    late.

    To all my friends and pro gassers
    too

    I wish you a Merry Christmas to you and too
    yours

    And for the New year soon to be
    here…

    No more delays Cuomo Natural Gas This
    Year
