The Oil Glut


From the Wall Street Journal: “The U.S. is so awash in crude oil that traders are experimenting with new places to store it: empty railcars.”


A couple places I suggest for a crude oil larder

include the heads of Congress — they are empty but for ardor.

Also try my bank account — it’s pretty deep and hollow.

And Donald Trump’s vast ego could a million barrels swallow.

How about Judge Scalia’s seat? I hear it’s vacant now;

it’s used to holding flammables and pomade anyhow.

Those with student debt can fill their beer kegs with crude oil;

it may not give much storage but their binges it will spoil.

Of course you can’t just turn it into gasoline so cheap;

that could spoil consumers — and would make their bankers weep.
