We paved paradise…

A beautiful spring day ~ A short stop at the mall ~ An anomaly still ~ But for how long?

Centuries past, humans unseen
When land was lush and air was clean
North to south skeins did fly
They owned the flight paths in the sky

Now wings of steel steal the blue
 Their trumpets whine and cough and spew
Toxic breath and acid tears
That drip from clouds and will for years

Fresh water’s history thanks to the rain
Our man-made link in nature’s chain
And too, no longer on the ground
 Will gaggles thrive on what they’ve found

Not sapphire blues or emerald greens
But concrete grays and blackish sheens
Migrate they will, migrate they must
But afore long it’ll just be dust

This earth below their broad spread wings
 This patchwork now of man-made things
They’ll adapt, to live, they’ll twist the plot

for…
 WE PAVED PARADISE TO PUT IN A PARKING LOT
