A poem reminding people about the environmental and mental issues of mankind

Down at the old swimming hole
Lives a man named Cole
He always seems down in the dumps
He always says his daughter has the mumps

Mumps|?  How can that be?
His daughter is gone, you see
He’ll let you fish there
As long as you care

Care about the land and fish
That’s his greatest wish
He lives off the earth
The place where he was birthed

Birthed on a farm that once was
When asked why, he says “Because.”
He keeps the area pristine
So the future can be seen

Seen by generations to come
Those who don’t have anything or anyone
So he goes puttering around
Enjoying his life taking care of the ground

Sounds like a happy man

Thank you for commenting on my poem. Yes, he is a happy man, but it's sad that he feels he has to be alone.

I like this poem even though it is sad because the man feels he has to be alone to take care of the earth.
