Pipe hugger

  1. Our future for a dollar and our nature for a holler.
  2. Just step in time and fall in line, bow to the tarry hauler.
  3. Steal it from the blue, paint it shiny, red, and new.
  4. Protect the sea, but build line three, and twin the mountain queue.
  5. Jumped on the wave inspired, but that voting plan backfired
  6. Forget the trees, hug pipes now, please, and light your drinks on fire
  7. Banners in the air, orange pom poms shake with flair.
  8. No one’s keen for fallen green, and stand up no one dares.
