Birds Missing (2Q Poem)


Why use strong pesticides
To eliminate crop bugs
And kill birds?

With resistant bugs
Prevailing on the field
Why say 'Where are the birds? '

(2Q poem: Basically two questions with a simple structure)

    Exactly right. They don't care about the critters, just the money. That's why they dump toxic waste and kill the fish. It's why they kill everything. I mean, hasn't anyone heard of crop rotation? We don't need pesticides, there are so many other ways to do it. I mean, think about Adam, it was his punishment to till the ground. So why can't we just do it and stop destroying everything?

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
