DROUGHT

a poem by Gail P. Kay, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

Where is the grass so green
That once softened
The land?
Harsh brown sameness
Stared me down
Until I cried.
Drought!
Dreaded enemy
Of man and beast
That you ravage the land
Is the least
Harm you do;
You squeeze a farmer’s heart,
His mind, and soul
In merciless grip
As he stands helpless
Before the rotten corpses
Of his livestock,
Mocked by the flies
In joyful frenzy,
As they feed upon his misery!
Drought!
Cruel enemy.
