Project Main Details

Memorial Tribute to Gulf of Mexico 
We've written a Memorial Day tribute to The Gulf of Mexico in response to the oil spill. It's entitled SHAME. We need a quality voice to provide a heartfelt narration of the poem. Your narration will be part of a video which will be released to the media TODAY and put online. We've hired individual musicians who have performed the song AMAZING GRACE by the shores of The Gulf in 4 different states. Your narration will accompany these individual performances... this is obviously a project not designed for profit so if a fee is required be gentle. I appreciate your interest in this project. Thanks.

Script Details

Sample script below sent by the seeker, please read a portion for auditions. 

Shame on the people so willing to risk
To pay less at a pump, a blessing like this
Shame on the driller who digs even deeper
Turning blind eye to an oily grim reaper
Shame on the lawyers, shame on the bosses
Believing that money corrects all the losses
Shame on the leaders playing their games
Pointing with fingers blackened with blame
Shame on the rules penned more to serve
Those who have more than already deserved
Shame on departments whose job is protection
Too lazy, too careless and corrupt for inspections
Dead zone in the water, a hole in the sky
The fish can’t swim – the bird can’t fly
The gator is choking, must the seabird request
permission from man for clean eggs in her nest?
Shrimper and crabber denied honest wage
By their very own nation, all are betrayed
The Lord he does giveth, so the Good Book does say
But clearly it’s man who taketh away
A decade or two, maybe three or more
It may take to clean the bayous and shores
But from all of the pockets, purses and such
Dear God how do we clean this shame upon us?
