Buzz Ballad: Al Armendariz

---apologies to Percy Bysshe Shelley, and "Ozymandias"

I met a traveler from southwestern lands

Who said, "There is a video upon

YouTube.  An administrator, offhand,

Informs his underlings that every one

Of them in South Central, 'neath his command

Must bend their ev'ry energy to try

To restrict the actions of companies

Which regulations let them crucify;

He gives those under him this knowing leer;

'My name is Al Armendariz, Ph.D!

Look on our acts, businessmen, and despair!'

But he did not remain.  He's gone away

And from his career's wreck, we are aware

Natural gas and tar sands wait to pay."
