dear ms b-its gone

Current U.S. Drought Monitor

ms b see all that dark stuff
that deep maroon-thats the aggies color
red-thats the razorbacks color
orange-thats the horns color
all that color use to be over where we live in
central texas

only recently did this small slither remain
right over the country n
its was so dry here
the water levels were low in our rainwater tanks
our source
our only source of water for drinking at
the country n

the grass was real brown
the trees werent growing well
the vines were not atwining around things much
even the weeds were all stunted
all the wild animals were suffering
boom came april and may
producing all the rain
so much rain that we set new records around here
filled up well almost filled up the lakes
the source of so many folks water

so we survived the worst drought maybe ever
in the country n area
never ever running out of water in our tanks
except for my accidentally emptying two big tanks
well ok i did empty another one by accident

so we around here learned a  lot about
conserving water
xeriscaping our landscape
not even at one point being able to wash our cars
we all survived
our water use dropped a lot

ill teach you what we learned

im worried that people will forget like they always
seem to do
start using water willy nilly and wasting it again
heck some folks even watered their yards
during all that rain we had
crazy aint it

now im hoping that you and those folks in
can learn some lessons from us
as we suffered through the drought
those dark colors real dark colors seem to be
sitting right over all of california

its important for you guys to get this right
since you all produce so much of our food
well probably most of it

im hoping that you grow up to be a
green person
conserving water
preaching the gospel that i preach
on taking care of this earth
we want it to be here when you get my age

now i hope yall listen to your moon beam governor
since he seems to be grabbing this issue by the

just remember if yall run out of water there
you can always move in with us
spoiling is guaranteed

heck it seems most of california is moving here
