The very nice young man, even
Christian, comes way out to our
house to talk about the gas. The
gas that is surely down there
under the farm, just sitting there,
waiting (who would have thought?
Whoever could have got it out,
but isn’t it almost unbelievable,
how smart people have got
these days?) And he, the
very nice young man, even
Christian, tells me how it’s even
almost a miracle, how they do
all this. Something nobody
could ever have used before is
the hope of America. A
miracle--we’ll be free of all
those foreigners with their oil.
And we know what they want,
after all, don’t we? The nice man,
young and even Christian, says.
Yes, naturally, think about it all
you want. Just call him when.
Just call him when all I want
to do is sign and get rich.
