Sorrows of a dry land

Sorrows of a dry land Where hunger and thirst Have no end The heat on winter Doesn’t get better but hotter People don’t drink But rather miss water Plants keep dying But non keep growing Rivers keep drying With no rain to keep flowing Birds and animals die And get melted by the heat Worms don’t feed But swim in their meat People grow thin Having nothing to eat The land get shaved Into a wide bald field Ruthless winds come With no trees to shield People lose some If not all of their property And the road is paved For the merciless poverty

I can feel the lament of this write. In the "Bible" in the book of Judges it is written at the very end that there were no judges to rule the land and everyone did what was right in their own eyes. Then the next book"Ruth" says there was famine in the land. So many times before destruction there is a separation from God then comes the famine. Of course, I do not know what country you are referring and if that was the case or if this is a metaphoric for something else. Keep the pen flowing. SK

What a heartfelt poem. nature can be so cruel at times. I wrote one about a drought but this conveys all the searing heat and starvation. To make the reader feel emotion is proof of a well written work.....Margaret
