Are people that ignorant or do they not want to see?

Mowing the grass, taking in the beautiful skies and fresh air

Looking over at a neighbor and not believing what I'm seeing, so unfair

Billowing smoke coming from the bottom of their garden into mine

Through the tomatoes, peppers and along the clinging vines

The wind is swirling the smoke all around and its full of pesticide

I asked is that for killing bugs or mosquitoes?  I was told for mosquitoes, besides

There's so many around, some kind of pesticide.  I wanted to cry out!

 Neighbor with a propane device, noxious smoke pouring in and about

I said have you noticed there's not as many butterflies or bees around?

Oh yes, especially the bees, there's hardly any bees to be found

Don't you know they're gone because of all the chemicals that are used?

A blank look followed, well--I just wanted to jump up and down!

And scream --Wake up people, please!  Ignorance doesn't mean you're excused!

I look over a couple of houses away; around the fence, is grass that's brown

No grass or weeds growing up that fence, anywhere to be found
