Razing Appalachlia

Mountain tops are blasted, what a way to kill,
the waste goes to the valley and streams, called a valley fill,
the forests are gone, and never planted back,
replaced instead with grass, we should dress in black.

Coal drives the country, the miners like to say,
we need to find something better, it doesn't have to be that way;
underground mining costs too much, that is probably true,
conservation works, it must, to preserve me and you.
The photos say it all, go to to learn more. (just click on the link.
We'll be back on the road tomorrow, in Pennsylvania.
Thanks for reading, bless you all.
