Dogs bark, pace and growl,
Men in white restless pickups-
Texas invasion

The heart's uneasy,
flares illuminate the sky
Where can one find peace

tall and smelly, noisy, strange
drilling rigs disgust

Diesel, benzene fumes
unnatural air to breathe,
shale drilling begins

Why have you done it-
leased the neighboring hay field
to destroy my dreams

Water ran clear here
before the Marcellus wells,
now no peace of mind

I wanted to sleep,
Mosquito song is better
Than frack trucks and drills
