So BP has been found “grossly negligent” in the lead-up to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and fined billions of dollars. In response to the original event, and other oil-related events past and imagined, I wrote a series of haikus. Not saying they’re any good, but here they are.

The Sea Empress holed . . .
crude oil slicking north and south
tarred the spring feathers

Heat-waves in Europe
slaughtered old and young alike –
climate change ‘r’ us

Katrina Mark II:
Deepwater Horizon spills
poisonous record

North Sea in winter,
OPEC spikes the markets and
ignites Armagedd-
