America Is Dying

America Is Dying

written by: Peggy Gerber

 

America is burning
from sea to shining sea.
The ocean storms are churning,
the devil has been set free.

America is burning,
skies blaze orange, no longer blue.
Our poor Earth that we’ve been spurning
is now damaged through and through.

America is burning,
dark gray embers steal our breath.
All the violent storms are warning
global warming could be our death.

The deadly fires rage out of control.
Our days glow black as night.
For the sake of all the children we love,
we must begin to do what is right.

America is burning!
