The Fall Of The Mayan Empire - Poem by David Keig
They slashed and burned the forests
To support their growth of crops
They farmed land till the topsoil
Was by the rains washed off.
The Mayan population
Grew malnourished and then died
And the mighty Mayan empire
Then slipped slowly out of sight.
This farming's being repeated
In rainforests the world wide
Why can't we learn from history?
Why can't we get it right?
