 Ode To Driveway

Paving of driveway …
Is not the recommended way
It is environmentally lame
Causing flooding, that lane …

If still hell-bent on same …
Stay firm in that lane …
For structural integrity …
Let Fabric Steel, be a used entity

Hopefully it is for longevity …
That you wish for this entity …
Do not be uptight …
Just lay the resource … right!

Ground water for underground
This is what studies have found
Giving aqueduct a boost …
Boosting same for future use

You are free to do as you wish …
Even if your action is not bliss?
Green space is the plan …
It fits in environment convention

You are not mentally lame …
To construct steel-less is tame
We wish you all the success …
You deserve nothing less …

Ah, ah, ah ….

Environmental Impact
The above “Poetic Commentary” about paving drive way speaks to the need to be environmentally friendly. Ground water needs to be harvested for future use.  This is becoming a scarce commodity today.  With global warning some places have excess water causing even flooding, whille other places have drought.
This new weather pattern has serious consequences for food security.  Water helps to preserve life, as we are all aware. So we cannot survive without water. Clean water for consumption, the only way to go.
Let us not ignore this threat to our peril.  Conservation is the only way to go.  We also need to preserve our environment for the next generation.  Will we not show we care?
What is your perspective?  Let us hear from you.
