Nature's Litmus PaperWhat can we do when it is raining outside
And atrazine is falling from the sky?
Can we offer an umbrella to the frogs?
Or simply cover the pond
Is there a way to filter the herbicide
When so little can cause such harm
How can we stop this poison
When it is spread by the pounds
Toxic chemicals are passed around
From country to country
With the promise of plentiful inexpensive food
Like some toxic peace pipe.
The solution lies when we take notice of the frogs,
Bees and butterflies
They are nature’s litmus paper
Of what will become of the rest of us.
