Concern: Dust Bowl

old family cabin mississippi

Times were hard

there was a scorching sun

dust rolled through the fields

there was no where to run

 

Concern for the family

there was a choice to be made

can the land be managed

or learn a different trade

 

Families had left

to search for a better life

only pestilence remained

it was a life of strife

 

Decision made

to let the land rest

moved to a new place

family thought it best

 

Time passed

returned to the farm

land is better managed

there is not an alarm

 

Plenty of food

grass for the cattle

preservation is an answer

to prevent another dust bowl battle
