the thing about rivers

Posted to Action Poetry

the thing about rivers
that gives people the shivers
is that while well defined in their route
they eventually give it the boot
those old beds no longer the way
and though for tradition we'll pray
lives benefit from change
not relying on old ways of ranges
though they keep the same name
their new course may earn fame
so the thing about rivers
is that we can learn a lot
if we trust in their nature
and don't force reversion on the spot
