My Wall Street Journal Poem
See previous post for explanation. Some of you suggested you might try. I'll link to anyone who comes through.
Also, Bad Aunt from Present Simple has also responded with a poem in which every word is taken from the paper she is currently proofreading.
Anybody else want to give it a try?
From the article (Feb 14, 2005):
"How Lowly Bitumen is Biting Oil Reserve Tallies"
His unusually attractive energy
coaxed from the dark
flowed down into deep wells
But recently plunging reserves forced replenishment
via fields usually considered empty
The rock-bottom year had a lasting effect
The bounce back was short-lived
And on paper only
Biting questions underscored the future's volatility
Time is too expensive
The drop in expectations is massive
And raises questions concerning viability
Brief rises are not nearly as dramatic
Hope is uneconomical
Estimates are revised downward
Still, she's not going anywhere
She remains vulnerable
To his unusually attractive energy
