It took us just sixty years
to slurp up the Ogallala aquifer.

Poets keep asking, “What
if poetry won’t save us?”

It’s fun to say ”Whaat??”
I taught my granddaughter, Renee.

Now she’s ready for first grade.

But, seriously,
we needed that water

for alfalfa.
Isn’t it great how

things we don’t expect
still happen.
