Over Polluted Rivers

~ To the melody of Over the River and through the Woods ~ Over polluted rivers and fire-ravaged woods To pay last respects to Nature we go We see many birds ailing and chipmunks a-wailing Downed power lines crackling, you know... So, we've canceled our journey and now we're returning It's already started to snow It if gets any deeper it'll kill the Spring creatures and that'll be the final death-blow

Sorry you had to make your vacation short. There will be other vacations you did the right thing. Safety trumps all my friend even if it hurts...

Good rhythm, flow and rhyme. I enjoyed reading this one today and your topic is right on point. I do wonder in those places that burned so this past summer what this wet winter will do to everything including wildlife. How much will survive. Thanks for sharing this one. Sara
