UNFORESEEN

UNFORESEEN
(To tune, “Donke-Schoen” by Bert Kaempfert, Kurt Schwaback and Milt Gabler, popularized by singer Wayne Newton.).

Unforeseen
It was unforeseen
So you say
But what does that mean?

Nuclear
Plants are dangerous
Where Chernobyl stood
Now’s an empty neighborhood

Unforeseen
Could you not foresee?
Three Mile Island’s still
Recent history?

Unforeseen
Nothing’s unforeseen
Accidents occur, when nuclear
They’re very mean

We have eyes
We all have a brain
Unforeseen
Doesn’t quite explain

 Air we breathe
Water that we drink
Is more valuable that dollars
Tell me, don’t you think?

 Unforeseen
That’s your alibi?
Unforeseen
Is your best reply?

We’ve all seen
Humans make mistakes
And with nuclear material
Think of the stakes

One more time
Tell me unforeseen
Fukashima dies
Still as mothers scream

And here on the scene
Turkey Point is clean
So says FPL, but they won’t tell,
What’s unforeseen

Unforeseen
What a scary dream
As radiation spreads above our heads
Soon everyone will be unseen

SCREAM FUKUSHIMA SCREAM

SCREAM, FUKUSHIMA SCREAM
(To tune of “Dream (When you’re Feeling Blue)” by Johnny Mercer)

Scream,Fukushima, you
Gleam, when the night is new
They said air levels were low in rads
They lied, too bad
Breathe in, if you’re mad

Just scream, on the cancer train
Teams down atomic rain
And there’s plutonium in the streams
So, scream, scream, scream.

Scream,Fukushima rant
Seems, there’s no foolproof plant
They’re raking billions in on grid needs
Risk no one heeds
When profit’s what leads

So scream, your mrems are high
Scream, knowing you might die
Things really are as bad as they seem
So, scream, scream, scream

Reprise:
Best not be eating nuclear ham
All scram, scram, scram
