"To me a lush carpet of pine needles or spongy grass is more welcome than the most luxurious Persian rug."  ~Helen Keller


Deep inside the forrest is like an ocean of unusual fish
there are creatures of every variety that we never knew we'de miss.

They lurk in obscure places from den trees to lilly pads
and fight for their survival like we struggle to earn our cash.

We live our lives oblivious to our fellow creatures beyond the brush
yet our actions affect their ecology and we never heed or hush.

For deep inside the forrest is like an ocean of amazing fish
there are creatures of every variety that we never knew we'de miss.
