The Waterways are Our ways
By David Smith September 16, 2009
Niagara Falls so deep and wide;
From the Great Lakes to the ocean tide;
The waterways, a picture of hope.
To ride a canoe and eventually a boat.
Now Great Lakers take their course;
With iron ore and human resource;
The waterways, man took a stand.
Cultivated and raped this virgin land.
Yielding thistles instead of fruit;
Polluted streams and air to boot.
We took the priceless natural ground;
Killed the environment with crashing sound;
Aboriginals to reservations go
Eliminated Buffalo, the food source, we know.
It all boils down to selfishness and greed.
We blame foreign countries for their inhumane deed;
All are human, let’s look within,
To change my life, where to begin?
The waterways a picture of hope;
Back to basics so we can cope.
