Gunnison Sage Grouse May Join The Dump Harry Reid Fight

Once again the Feds are in a balancing act
Species versus humans as habitat and jobs contract
The Gunnison sage grouse best known for its mating dance
Is about to go on the Feds’ endangered species list to give it a survival chance
But when the Feds act to control from far off and D.C. remote
With unelected bureaucracies in full on bloat
It is we mere struggling mortals who pay the job loss toll
Well meaning but heavy handed regs to pursue their goals
In a phrase putting this dancing bird on the list
Putting development and ranching on hold in their midst
Is “strictly for the birds”
Borders once again on the absurd
165 million acres of federal land from ranching and development may soon disappear
Another job killing act that we mere mortals have grown to rightfully fear
Two Blues in Colorado and Montana are in fierce Senate reelection fights
Yet support the grouse which may help ridding the Senate of the Harry Reid blight
