Fukushima makes one wonder
Was Diablo Canyon a mere blunder?
Built on fissures three miles under,
Likely, soon, to tear asunder.

South along the tidal reach,
Avila, Grover, Pismo Beach,
Folks sip wine and nosh on quiche,
Warier, now, of seismic breach.

Ditto they in San Clemente,
Just upwind of San Onofre,
Another plant by PGE
Fueled by lethal energy.

Fatal as the plague bubonic,
This plant too spans plates tectonic.
Was its builder just moronic,
Or is the company demonic?

Come the quake, the wind, the tide,
We, between, can nowhere hide.
We’ll be left but to decide:
Diaboiled or Onofried.
