America You Are Just Dangerous

Let’s face it living here is a lottery of death. Most countries have their natural perils but if danger were a horse race The U.S.A would beat all commers by a head and a neck. Those early colonists should have interrogated the natives, recorded the dire jeopardy of everywhere, but they were bold and daring and died in their hundreds. The fauna alone is enough to make you hide under a stone. Black bears, Brown bears, Grizzly bears, Kodiak bears, Polar bears……it’s unbearable. Then there’s the wolves, mountain lions, puma’s, panthers, enough to make you climb a tall tree and stay there. Not to mention, but I will, the alligators, crocodiles, and sharks, or the rattlers and water moccasins, also the big or small biting bugs, sneaky killers all. O and those interesting, varied, diverse and ever changing climates; earthquakes, Alaskan tsunami’s, the tornados and hurricanes, Ice, dust, and snow storms, Volcano’s, scorching desert death valleys, raging forest Fires. The many land and rock slides so many unsettling ways to drown in flash and surging floods. America I kind of like you, but each day I roll the dice just to see if snake eyes foretells of the usual trouble ahead. Now we have rampant crime and monkey pox, there’s always something to harm us on the way to the hospital.
