Destroying Paradise

We're losing our beloved horse pasture out back Progress is destroying paradise, everything's out of whack Soon the world will be paved over Surely no more rolling in clover Seems like us guys are about to run off the track © Jack Ellison 2015

Thought you haven't lived there long... Unfortunately the snow would have slowed them some... This just isn't your year for houses... Tho maybe if they build houses one can be yours... Just saying!

The horses they'll be crying....for no more Jack they'll be eyeing...the apples all gone...it is so wrong....the world we all love is dying
