THE DAM OF TOO MANY DAMN 'PROGRESS' WORDS. RIGINAL.
Sat up embedded in the mountain was the dam of Heaven scent
Wedged in and built with wordy words a few lives it did spent.
The 'Village of The Dam' gathered at the site
Prayed for word rain tumbling down started oh so slight.
The short word fill started slowly "praise to word God from above"
The birds they echoed plainly "be grateful for word LOVE."
The dam was filled and people trilled to words of love and prayer
A warning sign erected 'HALT! no words of damage...CARE!'
Pure water of words gushed out people they did fish
Words like "peace and god will" made a tasty dish.
Statues to dam builders were erected at the base
They had given of their whole lives... so much village chaste.
The peaceful little valley welcomed wordsmiths there
Their peaceful comments fluttered, mid wavelets of word CARE.
Came upon the mountain sounds of wordy threat
A herd of noisy chainsaws spitting out "be GET!"
The words of wordy 'PROGRESS' snarled through stricken trees
The foreman of the project at village protest sneezed.
The words of peace within the dam undercurrent strong
Felt the rumble neath its base felt it oh so wrong.
The rain God came to look shook its angry weary head
Warned the village people "get out before you're dead!"
The village of the peaceful dam stood angered as it broke
Word washed the 'PROGRESS project , away in one foul stroke.
Tumbled down the statues, the birds they sat remote
The last words spoke from 'PROGRESS' ? "can't! we're wordsmith BROKE!"
MORAL: Some words of 'PROGRESS' are better left unsaid, best to leave their rants and grants- home in POMPOUS bed...
