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

While I dallied around with a dilly who had been born in Phillie, I became a bully who should have been clubbed with a billy that had knocked me silly. Interesting. Might have to use this for my next poem. Oh, this for another poem you wrote. Oh, well. Jim Horn

Green pastures have all turned black, horses now drive Cadillacs, No more eating hay, fill'er up they say, on their way to the hamburger shack. Good morning Jack:)
