Happy Thanksgiving from Shale Plays Media

Happy Thanksgiving from Shale Plays Media! We wrote you all a sonnet to warm your heart for the holiday. Have a wonderful day!


When fall dies over boomtowns

the pump jacks nod, a creaking sound

and the gas flares sit upon a mound.

Wearing a hardhat, not a crown

roughnecks drive their pickups down

to their families, homeward bound.

Pumpkin pie with nutmeg ground

and turkey just the right shade of brown.

Telling their families anecdotes

of hardworking folks’ jokes

forgetting their natural gas capturing

when the radio’s on, familiar notes.

All while the cold weather pokes

hydraulic fracturing.
