Ready To Take Our Place

A mystic light-like meteor

Dashed over the countryside as if to score

All were in awe

For those who witnessed and saw

And nothing stayed the same

Pear and apple trees so rotten,

The cow went lame

The corn turned green

Famine and heat as the grass dried lean

Tree leaves too turned brown

People left, the village now a ghost town

For days the chickens laid no eggs

Only the caterpillars and the pest had a million legs

And farmer’s wife went into deep depression

As if she met the spooky ghost at dreamy session

Maybe the cosmic rays from a planetoid

Turned tables and created natures’ void

Or the riveting energy from a meteor

Brought this disaster to the core

Or perhaps a warning of another planet in outer space

Are responsible for the damage, ready to take our place.
