An ode to Indaver and their incinerator plans


The years have gone by

We thought he’d all gone

But he’s back with a vengeance

It’s of course;

Indaver’s John,

Now John and his incinerator

Sure he wants to build it today

But we’ll all stick together

And CHASE him away

Our John loves to make money

So why not sometime soon

Attach booster rockets to your burner

And create fiscal space;

on the moon!
