What Part Of Fukushima Do You NOT Understand? 

lyrics by Tom English

Whenever I hear people say
“Let’s re-start San Onofre”
When life and death – our very breath
Is what’s at stake
They talk of “tube fluidity” -”Elastic Instability”
And Fukushima rises like a mushroom headed snake

What part of Fukushima do you NOT understand
When Nuclear contamination hits the fan
Plutonium is everywhere, it’s in the sea, it’s in the air
And we don’t even have any evacuation plan
What part of Fukushima do you NOT understand?

What part of Fukushima did you somehow miss?
When, sure as shootin’, every time, in things like this
Destruction rages like a flame, officials playin’”Spin the Blame”
And all of us are bracin’, racin’, facin’ the abyss
What part of Fukushima did you somehow miss?

Human kind is human kind and we all make mistakes
Hard sometimes to not be blind and fall for fakes
But even now, before our eyes, it’s in the sea, it’s in the skies
You know we best prioritize Air! Water! C’mon, Guys!

What part of Fukushima do you need clarified?
What happens when the plate techtonics slip and slide
And then it blows – what happens then? It isn’t “if”, You know it’s “when”
And everybody petrified, no where to run, no where to hide

What part of Fukushima do you NOT understand?
How then can even FEMA ever lend a hand?
The time to make the break is NOW, to Wind and Wave and Solar Power
If we’re gonna live, nuclear power Must Be Banned!

Wrap your mind ’round Fukushima
It’s no time to be a dreamer
It’s no time to be a scheemer

Google Fukushima!

Take a STAND!
