My country has oil!
A British company struck it.
Now, the Germans will sell more rigs,
The Chinese will get more road tenders,
The Americans will feign disinterest…
Then probably send troops
To quell nonexistent intra clan clashes.
My politicians will grow fatter
My skies will darken,
My plants will dry,
My fish will die,
Then my people will follow suit…
But you don’t seem to get it,
Great news; my country has oil!!
