Dear Governor Shumlin,

What will be your legacy?

And what will you leave behind?

Profits for big corporations

or a future for humankind?

You say we must stop climate change

Yet, you're pushing a pipeline through.

Can't you see your hypocrisy?

Please align what you say and do!

Your legacy could be altered

If you'd open your eyes and see.

The decisions you make today

Will affect more than you and me!

You know the world is watching

To see if you have the grit

To stand up to the big boys

Please use your power and wit!

Your words are high and mighty;

We want to believe they're true.

Please stop this pipeline madness

And restore our faith in you!
