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
