040210c Dying Planet

tall grass line the watershed
turtles sunbathing on ledge
moccasin basking on wood
waiting for a fat frog for food
lately few; few are croaking
seasonal eggs not hatching

could it be a curse of acid rain
metals on water they're drinking
refuse to mate unknown disturbance
maybe your cellphone is the culprit
whatever it is we are heading trouble
whales beaching, dead zone appear
