The Morning News

Posted January 18, 2014 @ 9:37am | by Tripp

West Virginia water
takes with it
trust and wealth
and the families
we promised to protect.
While in California
the rain won't fall.
Streams and lakes
are drying up.
No snow on the mountains
means
no water in the valley
come
planting
season.

Absent or poisoned,
we are our
water.

All the great empires ruin
their own rivers
in the end.

Why is that?

All of this to say
that I should not read
the news first thing
in the morning.
