Her Land

Her Land

Her crystal lakes covered in oil
 Her ditches spoiled in garbage
 Her air ripe with the foul smell of pollution
 Smog starts settling in over her quaint little town
 It seems as though her people have forgotten her
 Nobody cares that the air is not safe
 Her water's start turning up dead animals
 The fisherman start losing their jobs
 The trees are not safe anymore
 People carving their names into the sides
 Then one day he appeared
 The waters started to becoming clear
 Her ditches full of grass instead of trash
 Where did he come from? No one's knows
 the fishermen getting their jobs back
 Wildlife remaining in their parts
 her town is alive once again
