Acid Rain Poem by David Darbyshire

Acid Rain

Rating: 4.6

The tree tops are Dead
and so are the Roots
It's the rain they Dread
also the Shoots

The rain is like Acid
it eats it all Away
should be more placid
would help in a big Way

But one Day the Trees will be Gone
It seams all the people do is Yawn
But when it is Black, Dark, and no Bark
We'll wish we were sitting in a Green Park

Very profound poem indeed, my sentiments exactly. I love reading poems about the environment, we as poets have to do our best to get this message out and you David have done your part. Don't stop, keep writing about it, excellent poem. --Melvina--
