DEATH OF LIFE?
That all the birds refused to sing
And all the squirrels left the trees
And there were no buzzing bees
To wile away the daylight hours
Polluting all the fruits and flowers.
The cloudless sky dried up and so
There was no rain for plants to grow
And beneath a blazing sun
Bugs and weeds died one by one.
Fear gripped the helpless population.
Had Nature taken a vacation?
Even worse, the people cried,
Had Life committed suicide?
