It’s Burning Down in Texas
It was a beautiful day,
the kind you want to toast.
We were riding south on the Ultras,
looking for a harley trading post.
Off to the east we spied,
the billowing clouds of smoke.
The fire was out of control,
and people had lost their lives.
Bastrop, Tx was burning down,
houses were lost and animals too.
The drought has been substantial,
and now its taking it’s due.
Fireman and rescuers are out in force,
battling the blazes and putting out the embers.
But they can’t stand up to mother natures course.
I felt guilty about enjoying the day.
We had waited so long, for the 100 degree temps to go away.
We rode through smoke in San Antonio, Blanco, and Marble Falls.
Texas is burning, God help us all!
